Plane Talking UK's Podcast

Join Carlos, Nev and Matt as they take a look through the world of aviation.

In an episode that appears to be sponsored by a low cost carrier and the British flag carrier we discuss a new low cost UK carrier, outrage as an airline's website goes offline for maintenance during a sale and there's a refit on the cards for the A380.

We get some feedback from the Virgin Lounge at Melbourne Airport.

It's a sad day in the world of Military as Lossiemouth lose their Tornado Squadron.

Join Carlos, Matt and Adrian as they take their weekly trawl through the big aviation news of the week.

In today's show we discuss double beds in for one airline, our national treasure of an airline reduces it's seat pitch to much furore and an investigation is launched at one airline as an allegation is lodged over a pilot participating in the 'pre-flight' safety demonstration.

Pilot Pip discusses the rather raw subject in light of French Air Traffic Control strikes of Diversions.

In the military we're talking custom paint jobs for fighter jets and there's talk of Osprey's being fitted with Rocket Guns. A link to one story sent in to us by one of our awesome listeners HAS to be seen to be believed with the F35 Fighter :
