Plane Talking UK's Podcast (aviation)

Join Carlos in the Kitchen Studio and Matt via an atrocious digital connection from Clacton-on-Sea as they take their weekly trawl through the week's big Aviation related stories.

In this episode we discuss the worrying news that one carrier has grounded their fleet of Dreamliners, a low-cost carrier is offering free flights to see the Northern Lights (but as you might imagine, there is a catch) and we celebrate the youngest 'round the world' pilot.

It was a short show this week as Matt's connection was proving to be a little challenging.

Don't miss next week's show as we're broadcasting LIVE from the Seething Air Show - Join us if you can for this very special event.
