In 1948, Berlin was at the very edge of a political confrontation between the east and the west, better known as The Cold War. When all accesses to the western part of Berlin were closed by the Soviet Army in the summer of 1948, only air transportation was able to support the city of Berlin and its more than 2 million citizens. Until then, nobody had any idea how to set up such a huge operation. But thanks to personal initiative, courage, trust and an unconditional will of the western allies to help, it became the most spectacular and largest relief operation in history. It was an organizational and logistical masterpiece and an impressive demonstration of humanitarian support and adherence. Join us for an informational program on this fascinating and historic topic. Click Here for more…In Summer 2019, 70 years after the original event, about 40 original machines (DC-3, DC-4 and JU-52) from four continents will fly their former routes all the way to Berlin to commemorate the Berlin Airlift.

We invite any of our WWII Pilots who may have been involved in any way in the Berlin Airlift to call into our program at 213-816-1611 at 7:00 P. M. ET as we depart the gate. A Historic Anniversary that you will want to hear all about or join in with this Anniversary in the Summer of 2019!

EAL Radio Show Episode 393

Monday, December 3, 2018

Dick Aarons, The  Philadelphia Daily News Aviation Reporter

Sharing His Article on "The Collision of

Eastern Flight 853 and TWA"


The EAL Radio Show has scheduled Episode 393 that will air on Monday evening, December 3, 2018 at 7:00 P.M. ET with our Guest Host, Mr. Dick Aarons. Dick, a young reporter back then, specialized in aviation for The Philadelphia Daily News and covered the story in 1965. Eastern Air Flight 853 crashed and burned with all but one survivor, Eastern Captain Charles White when a TWA Boeing Jetliner collided on December 4, 1965.


We anticipate a tragic memory shared by Dick Aarons with insights from that Eastern Flight 853. An excerpt we took from an Article  written by one of our members, Jack Sanders on December 9, 2015, at that time says.  In 1965, Dick Aarons, a young reporter specializing in aviation for The Philadelphia Daily News, was sent to cover the crash. Like many others, he was impressed with Captain White and the crew of the Eastern airliner. “Thanks to the extraordinary skills and courage of the Constellation crew, 50 people survived that accident, and except for Capt. White’s selflessness, it would have been 51,” Aarons said.


We are very much looking forward to having Dick share those memories. Please call in at 213-816-1611 at 7:00 P. M. ET as we depart the gate, on Monday evening, December 3, 2018,  and join in to hear this story. You

John B. "Dizzy" Gillespie was an American jazz trumpeter, bandleader, composer, and singer and a trumpet virtuoso and improviser adding layers of harmonic and rhythmic complexity previously unheard of in jazz. His combination of musicianship, showmanship, and wit made him a leader of the new music called bebop. Sometimes wearing his beret and horn-rimmed spectacles, his bent horn, and pouched cheeks.


The program airs Thursday, November 15, 2018 at 3:00 P.M so please join Captain Neal and our Host, Don Gagnon as they reminisce the days at Eastern along with hearing Dizzy and his bebop music.

"Eastern Airline Plays the Big Band Era"
Miles Davis, Jazz Trumpeter


The next "Old Time Radio Show" Episode 17, airs with another band in our new series. So listen in on Thursday, November 29, 2018 at 3:00 P.M., for the sounds of Miles Davis.


Miles Dewey Davis III (May 26, 1926 – September 28, 1991) was an American jazz trumpeter, bandleader, and composer. He is among the most influential and acclaimed figures in the history of jazz and 20th century music. Over six full decades, from his arrival on the national scene in 1945 until his death in 1991, Miles Davis made music that grew from an uncanny talent to hear the future and a headstrong desire to play it. Throughout a professional career lasting 50 years, Miles Davis played the trumpet in a lyrical, introspective, and melodic style, often employing a stemless Harmon mute to make his sound more personal and intimate.


Do you remember listing to the sounds of the classic Miles Davis Quintet of the '60s with saxophonist Wayne Shorter to the team of Davis, Carter, Hancock, and Williams. Well join us to hear more…The program airs Thursday, November 29, 2018 at 3:00 P.M so please join Captain Neal and our Host, Don Gagnon as they reminisce the days at Eastern along with hearing the sounds of Miles Davis.
