Plane Talking UK's Podcast

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

In today's programme (recorded on 09-Sep-2018) we discuss the protests over plans to build a Flight Training Academy in Gloucester, the rules for hand luggage change yet again for one low cost carrier and we talk about that data breach for the UK's legacy carrier.

In the military Singapore show off their new A330 Tanker and Boeing win their first major defence contract in almost a decade.

Nev treats us to a trip on Brighton's i360 and Pip is talking Astronomy in his latest feature.
