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.

Feb 2, 2022

Join, Carlos, Matt, Nev and Armando for this week's programme.

In this week's packed show Airbus & Qatar argue about paint, Airbus rents out some aircraft to earn a few quid, and a Boeing 747 that cost a quid is turned into a nightclub.

In the military, another F-35 crashes into the ocean, this time an American F-35C into the South China Sea while pictures emerge of the recovered British F-35 that plopped into the sea a few weeks ago.  A couple ex-RAF BAe-146s are headed to museums, and Armando talks about how the Air Force is tackling its own pilot shortage.

We also update you on our special 400th Show at the end of February!
