Thursday, August 28, 2008. Twenty years ago today, a mid-air collision during an airshow at Ramstein Air Base in West Germany killed three pilots and 67 people on the ground. I talk about how this event, possibly the worst airshow disaster in history, took place, and about the emotional reaction I had to it.
Witnesses and survivors of the Ramstein airshow disaster can be found in a number of places on the Internet -- a principal one is at the site www.flugtag88.com. The translation of lyrics for the song 'Ramstein,' along with many other Rammstein songs, can be found at the fan site Herzeleid.com. Our theme music is composed and performed by Marc Rose.
