Join Carlos, Nev, Matt and Armando for this week's episode of the UK's Number One Aviation Podcast. Andrew from the 'Plane Reclaimers' TV Show joins us to talk about the ins and outs of taking the in's of the aircraft out.
In this week's show we learn there is a heady mix of apologies and law suits for Luton's favourite low cost carrier, facemasks and smoking force a Canadian budget airline to divert to Winnipeg and the last ever flight of an A380 operated by the French flag carrier takes place.
In the military there is a US Military First as the Air Force pick a Woman as their Top Enlisted Leader and we get our first look at the UK government's newly painted A330.
In this week's "The Plane Truth" with Captain Al our topic is: Airplane Lightning Strikes - Are they Dangerous?
