Plane Talking UK's Podcast

Join Carlos, Nev and Matt (briefly) for this week's episode of the show.

In today's programme we discover very sad news as another airline falls by the wayside, competition winners are bumped out of Business class by one legacy carrier and facial recognition trials begin at Heathrow Airport.

In the military an RAF Voyager refuels an F35b in the UK for the first time and the official report into the Thunderbird's crash is released.

Barbara talks to Nev about her recent experience with Jet2, Ray Davis shares with us his experiences from the Warbirds Down-Under show in Temora and Captain Al gets all serious as he chats to Mikey McBrian during his visit to Oshkosh 2018.

We love to receive your feedback (good or bad) so why not help keep us in check with our accuracy by sending it to podcast@planetalkinguk.com.
