So...we are all gathered in the Hangar 49 studio for the recording of this show. The recording is going well. Then, we get ready to introduce the interview and...poof....Jim disappears. He's gone. Just like Elvis. He's probably driving a cab in Vegas and moonlighting as an Elvis impersonator. Anyway...Tony and I handle the rest of the show with a great interview with Bruce Williams, a classic movie, a hidden gem of a song, and a good book to relax by the fire on a chilly winter evening. It's all here in this episode of Hangar 49. Enjoy!
Book: Bound for the Backcountry-A History of Idaho's Remote Airstrips by Richard Holm
Oh...and if you're in Vegas and you see a familiar face with huge glasses, a karate gi, and bushy sideburns...tell Jim hello for us.

We are back from vacation (or "Holiday" as Tony, all Canadians, and proper British society would say) with another "really big shew." Tony suggested "Volare" by Dean Martin as our song for this show. "Volare" in Italian is "fly." Of course. Why not. Plus, our residnet music expert Tony also suggested we listen to David Bopwies version. We have them both.
Plus, we have a special guest star. Bruce Williams is the expert on Microsoft Flight Simulator and we learn how to use the program as a training aid (and why not...Bruce wrote the book!).
Tony also has his personal story about the story behind our movie.
All that and more on this episode of Hangar 49!
