Join Carlos, Matt, Dr Steph and Micah for a very busy episode.

In this week's show we discuss further problems involving mobile (cell) phone batteries, officially the world's shorted commercial flight and one flight is diverted as the cabin fills with smoke.

Pilot Pip brings us a great segment involving gliding and the results of our 'Best Airliner' listener poll is released.

We also broadcast directly via our own website for the very first time (yes I know, not very exciting to anyone other than Matt lol).

If you'd like to support Dr Steph as she runs the Chicago Marathon for a great cause, please use the link below to donate; I'm sure she'd appreciate any donation you can manage:

Join Carlos in the Kitchen Studio and Matt via an atrocious digital connection from Clacton-on-Sea as they take their weekly trawl through the week's big Aviation related stories.

In this episode we discuss the worrying news that one carrier has grounded their fleet of Dreamliners, a low-cost carrier is offering free flights to see the Northern Lights (but as you might imagine, there is a catch) and we celebrate the youngest 'round the world' pilot.

It was a short show this week as Matt's connection was proving to be a little challenging.

Don't miss next week's show as we're broadcasting LIVE from the Seething Air Show - Join us if you can for this very special event.
