We’re celebrating WYSO’s 60th birthday this year by listening to highlights from our historic audio collection.
Over the years, WYSO has often reported from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base In 2003, early in the war in Iraq, WYSO producer Ryan Warner did a story about the C-141 Starlifter, a gigantic military transport plane that became a common site in our local skies that year.
The Starlifter has since been retired, and Ryan Warner can now be heard on Colorado Public Radio.
