The Geeks go it alone in this episode, but despite the lack of an aviation guest we manage to have a great time talking aviation.
The week’s aviation news:
- Air Force plans to ground Global Hawk plane, stop production, report says
- Push For 3rd Chicago Airport Still Aloft
- Delta Said to Weigh US Airways Bid in Review of M&A Options
- Delays Worse After JFK Runway Work Done
David’s Aircraft of the Week is the Lockheed Model 10 Electra.
In this week’s Australia Desk report, Grant flys solo this week and covers a few headlines, an overly accurate mood-sensing music system, and some voice mails.
Find more from Grant and Steve at the Plane Crazy Down Under podcast, and follow the show on Twitter at @pcdu. Steve’s at @stevevisscher and Grant at @falcon124.
In the Across the Pond segment, Gareth Stringer and Tim Robinson talk with Pieter Johnson about aviation news items from Europe. Making the cut this week is the Neuron-UCAV, the RAF buying second hand transport aircraft and the latest idea for runway capacity in the UK.
