Hangar49
We talk about different airstrips to visit, the ups and downs of flying in the Pacific Northwest, and all the fun events you can find here! We also like to discuss aviation music, movies, books, and websites. Basically we are just a bunch of fun loving pilots that have a passion for aviation just like you!
OK....We're doing a Special Christmas show!

Join us as those three wacky pilots get serious (sort of) and gather around the tree for some holiday flying banter.  This episode is
filled with holiday cheer, great movies, music, and even some poetry (hey....we got culture) as we call a "wrap" to 2012.

Enjoy.

Yep!  Here we are again.  Your three wayward pilots are broadcasting live (and recorded for your enjoyment) sitting just inches away from the Arlington Fly-In Flight line.  Listen in amazement as throaty-engined World War II radial engines spray propwash and mess up their finely-combed hairstyles.  We recorded this episode on July 13, 2012.  OK, we're a little late in posting this.  Hey...the production staff was on another vacation.
