Plane Talking UK's Podcast

Join the PTUK crew for what we're convinced is our biggest show ever! Carlos, Matt, Captain Al, Pilot Pip and the Aviation Podcasting Legend that is Captain Jeff for a show our producer isn't going to forget for many years!

In this episode we discuss some excellent reporting from the Nottingham Post which literally has Carlos in stitches, long awaited refunds for lost baggage becomes a reality and WOW Air bring more good news for transatlantic low cost travelers.

We also get to talk to the man behind The Airline Pilot Guy Show about his flying career and how THE BEST aviation podcast came about.
