Plane Talking UK's Podcast

Join Carlos, Nev, Armando and Matt for this week's stroll through the world of aviation.

In today's programme we discover a security breach affecting almost 10 million airline passengers, one special luxury flight is giving you the chance to see Old Year's Night twice and disgruntled passenger is detained for slapping cabin crew with their phone.

In the military the Red Arrows are heading stateside as part of a landmark tour and the UK begins talks to buy some iconic helicopters.

Pilot Pip regales us with a tale from his early days as a pilot and Nev shares with us his time at an APG / PTUK meetup at Heathrow.
