Episode Description

Welcome to The Hangar Z Podcast, brought to you by Vertical HeliCASTS.

In this long-anticipated two-part series, we sit down with U.S. Army pilot CW5 Allen C. Mack, who authored the riveting book Razor 03.

In Razor 03, Mack shares his behind the scenes perspective of The Horse Soldiers in the war in Afghanistan. Mack discusses the hunt for Osama bin Laden, and his shoot-down during Operation Anaconda. Years later, he chased Bowe Bergdahl, rescued hostages in Iraq and a survivor from the Kunar Valley. He lived by his unit’s motto: “Night Stalkers don’t quit.”

Ten years of deployments brought Mack monumental success and crushing sadness. Both provide intriguing accounts of war, love, determination and emotional resilience.

Join us as we discuss Mack’s life and experiences as a special operations pilot for the U.S. Army 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, known as the Night Stalkers.
