The History Channel "Shockwave" interview about Wayne Handley's airshow crash

The History Channel "Shockwave" interview about Wayne Handley's airshow crash

I had my turn in the "hot seat" for the History Channel program "Shockwave". The show was about Wayne Handley's airshow crash in the Turbo-Raven and how he survived the horrific crash landing. At the 1999 California International Airshow, Wayne's Saturday performance was perfect and a great crowd pleaser. On Sunday, Wayne experienced an engine failure below bailout altitude and was left with no choice but to fly the Turbo-Raven into the ground.
