Plane Talking UK's Podcast

Join Carlos, Matt, Dr Steph and Micah for a very busy episode.

In this week's show we discuss further problems involving mobile (cell) phone batteries, officially the world's shorted commercial flight and one flight is diverted as the cabin fills with smoke.

Pilot Pip brings us a great segment involving gliding and the results of our 'Best Airliner' listener poll is released.

We also broadcast directly via our own website for the very first time (yes I know, not very exciting to anyone other than Matt lol).

If you'd like to support Dr Steph as she runs the Chicago Marathon for a great cause, please use the link below to donate; I'm sure she'd appreciate any donation you can manage:

In this episode we discover that cockpit selfies were outlawed in 1937, low cost transatlantic flights to the states look set to become a reality and one low cost airline has some very bad news for one of our hosts.

We also play out our interview with the Bird Dog pilot at Seething Air Show Day.

Join Carlos, a very confused Matt, Pilot Pip and a very full chat room for this week's episode of the show.

In today's episode we cover the sad news of the Red Bull Pilot helicopter crash, a rather expensive Piper biz jet enters service and a bad week for Samsung continues as their latest handset is banned from several commercial flights.

Pip joins us from the South of France and we play out the first of our pilot interviews from our local Seething Air Show.

In this week's episode we pay our respects to the designer of the iconic 747, there's an update on the engine issue at ANA and there's an emergency landing in Ireland due to turbulence.
