Join Carlos, Nev, Eoin, Captain Nick and Matt for today's trawl through the big aviation related stories.

In a week where another carrier retires their last 747 we're talking the issues being generated by some low cost carriers when land luggage is going in the hold, another passenger opens the emergency exit on the tarmac and one company is touting new restraints for that 'difficult' passenger.

In the military it's sad news involving a C130 crash and it's a tense time for German forces as their fleet of EuroFighers are 'down to four'.
