We also have a report from the Airplane Geeks Australia Desk, and Court has another great Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot segment. We’re joined by David Vanderhoof, our Airplane Geeks Historian, and we don’t mean just his words. This time you get to hear it straight from David!
Dan, Rob, and Max are joined this episode by two guests: Chris Webb, who directed and co-produced the documentary film, Air Racer: Chasing the Dream, and Blogger Bob from The TSA Blog, a very active site.
