Episode Description

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

In this two-part series, hosts Jack Schonely and Jon Gray sit down with Kris Stone, owner and handler of K9 Torque, and the Huey Vets crew from EMU Inc.

In this conversation, the EMU crew discusses their work with K9 Torque, a detection dog trained to find electronic storage devices. Torque specializes in finding flash drives and SD cards to help investigators gather evidence against child sexual predators and traffickers. Torque is also a therapy dog, providing comfort and support to veterans and children in hospitals and schools.

The EMU crew also shares their work with Huey Vets, an organization that uses helicopters to raise awareness about the forgotten heroes of the Vietnam War.

We discuss the challenges and maintenance considerations of operating and restoring the Huey helicopter.

Vietnam vet Geoff Carr and his team discuss the battle damage and life expectancy of the EMU 309 aircraft during the Vietnam War. They also discuss the nonprofit nature of their organization and their mission to support veterans and raise awareness about post-traumatic stress disorder
