Author Interview with Taras Lyssenko of A and T Recovery (who have raised dozens of warbird wrecks for museum restoration)

9 August 2019

This link leads to a current interview of Taras Lyssenko by Deanna Shoss of InterculturalTalk.com. Taras is the author of The Great Navy Birds of Lake Michigan: The True Story of the Privateers of Lake Michigan and the Aircraft they Rescued. Deanna has worked with Taras, most significantly with outstanding SBD Dauntless exhibit at Midway Airport in Chicago, and knows him well. Her interview is engaging and she brings answers from Taras that fill in the backstory to many of A and T Recovery’s successes (as told in the book)—as well as his thinking and motivation (which are not what readers are likely to think).

Here is my review of The Great Navy Birds of Lake Michigan: The True Story of the Privateers of Lake Michigan and the Aircraft they Rescued.
