In this episode Jim, Tony, and Al discuss photo pilot dertificates, aircraft accidents, and the royal family (really).  They also whine about not getting enough flight time and welcome a couple of special guests.  Of course, the episode includes the usual book, movie, song and website.  You'll notice that there isn't a Destination of the Week but please don't bring it up...they'll only whine more about not getting enough flight time.

BOOK OF THE WEEK
Hornet Flight-Ken Follett
"An old-fashioned tale of ordinary people thrown into the drama and danger of war, Hornet Flight is a rippingly good read. The time is 1941, and British bombers attacking Germany are being blown out of the sky in horrific  numbers. How do the Nazis know they're coming? The answer is an infant technology called radar, and the Brits--with help from the Danish Resistance--must figure out how and where the German radar stations operate."
 
SONG OF THE WEEK-Pearl Jam "Given to Fly"
 
SOUND OF THE WEEK-172 Mayday

WEBSITE OF THE WEEK-Aviation Safety Network
 
MOVIE OF THE WEEK-Battle of Britain

Well I got episode 17 out there last night and went to bed. I got up this morning and listened to it and realized I published the wrong copy that wasn't finished being edited. So if any of you got the one with the messed up beginning I apologize. I will get the correct one uploaded tonight.
