Join Carlos, Matt, Pip and Al for what can only be described as a rather chaotic trawl through this week's aviation headlines.

In this week's episode we discuss six aborted landings, business class flying with a low cost carrier, our British Flag carrier is taking team GB to Rio and an A340 begins it's new life offering zero-gravity flights.

Our guests were in fine fettle this week and (as usual) we had some great questions that were put to them in our chat room during the live show.

Some great audio feedback from Craig really got us all chatting too.

Pip is running the London Marathon in next week's show and (if Matt can work his magic) we're hoping to talk to him LIVE to find out how it's going. Find out all the info on his page - :-)
