Max’s pic of the week:

Paper Pilot: Battle of the air
This is just about the coolest paper airplane page you’ll find.  A true time sink for airplane geeks.

Episode 4 – News Extravaganza!

FrustrationWe had quite a difficult go of the AirplaneGeeks podcast for episode 4.  From failed hard drives, to guest cancellations, we did what we could to pull together an industry podcast for you.  Unfortunately, there are some serious sound quality problems that we’ve tried desperately to rectify.  So, if you make it to Episode 5, we consider you a true fan!

This week, Max and Court focus on news.

Max’s pick of the week can be found at http://www.techinflight.com.  Please visit their site and tell them The Airplane Geeks sent you.

The winner from last week’s trivia  is Leslie from Michigan.  Don’t miss this week’s trivia question.
