Plane Talking UK's Podcast

Carlos, Nev, Armando and Matt bring you a weekly Podcast that will focus on the Commercial and Military Aviation news relating to us long suffering members of the general public.

Aug 15, 2021

Join Matt, Nev and Captain Nick for this week's programme.

In this week's show we learn about the unique way a passenger attempted to board their closed flight, A London(!) Airport shrugs off a base closure and insects ground three flights for the UK's Flag Carrier.

In the military the US Air Force takes a stab at landing some A-10s and Dornier 328s on a public highway; the Luftwaffe wows crowds in Michigan with the A400M; and the Carolinas Aviation Museum gets a big boost from Defence-aerospace company Honeywell to reopen the museum in 2023 featuring Sully's legendary Airbus A320 that landed on the Hudson River in New York.

Nev and Nick also tease a great interview that we're looking forward to share with you towards the end of September with Mike Wildeman from the 'Team Phoenix' project.
