On the Wings of Warbirds

About the Project

Sept. 8, 2014
The Weather Channel

Blue Chalk worked with The Weather Channel to produce a series of short films to be shared across the web and adapted for television. The films tell the stories of real people for whom having an accurate weather forecast is essential.

Our seventh film follows Stan “Stitch” Markus as he prepares to fly his T-6 Texan warbird in formation at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, an international air show for over 500,000 aviation enthusiasts each year. The T-6 Texan warbird is a single-engined advanced trainer used to teach pilots to fly during WWII. These antique aircraft have limited instrumentation, making a check of the forecast a necessary precursor to flight.
