Plane Talking UK's Podcast

Join Carlos, Matt and special guest Keith as they take their weekly trawl through the big Aviation stories which matter to us here in the UK.

We discuss the effects a potential 'Brexit' would have on the cost of your flight, an aircraft it taken out of service because of 'Bed Bugs' and Glasgow is the latest victim of the 'Laser Pointer' epidemic.

Keith talks to us about the amazing world of aviation and the challenges a pilot faces when it's regularly -30 degrees celsius.

Join Carlos and Matt from the flight deck of the Iconic Vulcan Flight Deck for their 100th (!!!) show. We have the usual trawl through the big commercial and military aviation stories of the week as well as a segment from our resident pilot / marathon runner.

Our 100th episode wouldn't be the same without the mandatory Ryan Air customer service faux pas, we bring you the latest on the Bombardier job cuts and details of Virgin Galactic's new craft have been released.

Colin from the Norwich Aviation Museum chats to Carlos about the Vulcan and their big plans for the future and we share with you the great Voice Feedback we received from you, our lovely listeners.

We really can't thank the staff enough for all their support with this special episode and would strongly recommend a visit to the museum. All the details you need can be found at
