Connie Edwards earned his pilot’s license in 1951 and, as a teenager, flew extensively in Central America, Cuba and the US. Flying for the movie industry in the 1960’s Connie collected a lot of stories and aircraft. He was the chief stunt pilot for the classic movie “Battle of Britain.” He is a great story teller so the challenge for Warbirds In Review will be deciding which questions to ask. From his upbringing in a Texas pioneer family to owner of Edwards Petroleum Company, family ranch, founder of Texas Stone Quarries, movie stunt pilot, collector of significant aircraft, to recreating the 1919 flight of the Navy NC-4 , PBY (the very first Atlantic crossing by an aircraft) there should be a movie about his life.
This Warbirds in Review presentation featuring the Albatross, painted in US Coast Guard Livery, with owner Connie Edwards, LCDR Timothy Holt and other members of the US Coast Guard.
