Plane Talking UK's Podcast

Join Carlos, Nev, Armando and Matt for a very special episode of the show.

We have our usual trawl through the Commercial News stories hitting the headlines this week including United taking delivery of their first 787-10, Ryanair having a spot of trouble with the French Authorities and Qantas begins trials of a mobile phone passport technology.

In the Military the Eurofighters pass the milestone 500,000 flying hours and MP's call for RAF Leeming to become the Red Arrow's new home.

In our last piece from Oshkosh 2018, Captain Al talks to the guys from Foreflight about their incredible software.

2018 marks the centenary of the end of the Great War and we close the show with a very moving piece from Captain Nick who shares with us the story of the Unknown Warrior.

Here are the links to the stories we featured :
