Plane Talking UK's Podcast

Join Carlos, Nev and Matt for the last live programme of 2018.

In today's show the subject of emotional support animals raises it's head again, one disruptive passenger receives a well deserved large bill and a bizarre item is found on the menu of the UK's favourite legacy carrier.

In the military NORAD prepare for their annual tracking of Santa and a beach landing is attempted with an A400M.

Part 3 of our exclusive series where Captain Nick talks to Sir Richard Johns about the record keeping he did which enabled him to recall events for his autobiography.

We have some festive messages to share with you from Jenny in Rome, Dan Hannington and Eoin (although it may have been more challenging for him to record than he was expecting).

Next week is a recorded episode of our now annual multi-podcast online meetup which was recorded on Wednesday 5th December. With Pip and Al in the chair and the Old Curmudgeon on top form, this is a festive treat not to be missed.

Live programming will return on Friday 4th January.
