Plane Talking UK's Podcast

Join Carlos, Nev, Grant and Matt for today's show.

In this episode there is worrying news from one low cost Icelandic carrier, everyone's favourite Irish airline leaves their passengers out in the rain and Grant gets to mention Qantas several times.

In the military there is a dispute between the UK's Navy and RAF as the latter pushes for new jets that cannot fly from warships and the RAAF say goodbye to the P3.

It's the premier of our 6 part series with the legendary Sir Richard Johns as he talks to Captain Nick about his new autobiography 'Bolts from the Blue'.

Neil Draper shares with us his amazing footage he's put together from the 2018 Duxford Battle of Britain Air Show, there's a special message for one of our hosts and the details of our Christmas competition are announced.

We'd love to hear from you so get involved by emailing the show on podcast@planetalkinguk.com.
