The Geeks are off for the Labor Day holiday, but we’ve put together an interesting episode nonetheless.
Rob Mark talks to us about the origins of Labor Day, his role in the PATCO and ALPA labor unions, and the value of labor unions today.
David Vanderhoof attended the Atlantic City Airshow and brings us interviews with the Golden Knights, The Brazilian Smoke Squadron, A-10 Demonstration Team, and AV-8B from VMA-231 Harrier Demonstration Team. David also has his This Week in Aviation segment bringing us interesting historical items.
The guys from the Plane Crazy Down Under podcast have their Australia Desk report. It’s just been Father’s Day and sons Chris and Nykolai offer some pithy commentary as Steve and Grant talk about the Qantas uncontained engine failure, the Virgin Blue/Etihad tieup and the Qantas response.
Dan Webb and Courtney Miller teamed up to talk about some current news: 50 seat jets and their role in the future, and scope clauses and the United/Continental merger.
Opening and closing music is provided by Brother Love from the Album Of The Year CD. You can find his great music at http://www.brotherloverocks.com/.
