Join Nev, Pilot Pip, Captain Al and Matt for an amusing stroll through this weeks big aviation stories.

In a week where all the stories were chosen by our lovely listeners we take a look at the details on yet another BA Technical Glitch, rumours emerge over a merger between Dubai's main carriers and we discover that no one still knows what on earth is happening over a certain big event taking place at the end of May 2019!

In the military accusations are rife over the shooting down of a Russian Spy plane and the RAF creates it's first joint squadron since WW2.

Carlos pops back to Farnborough 2018 with Captains' Al and Jeff as they talk about their highlights and one of our listeners Tom Harris tells about how he fell in love with Aviation.
