Hangar49 (general)
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!

Merry Christmas from Jim, Tony, Al, the production staff (already in the Caymans for the holidays), the research department (wondering why the production people get all the perks), marketing and sales crew (curious as to why there is so much money flying around when they've never sold anything), and all our investors and stockholders (now consulting their attorneys to find a loophole to sue the production staff to at least get to look at the Gulfstream through the hangar window).  Ho, ho, ho.

A flying "moment"

Welcome to Hangar 49.  All pilots have had a "moment" when they were flying.  (Don't lie, you know you have.)  Tony and Al talk about a couple of moments.  Jim chimes in with his thoughts on movies and music.  And we go to the movies with Clark Gable and the heartthrob of Tony's youth....Myrna Loy.  Fasten your seat belts and turn off your electronic devices prior to take off....wait...no...you can't do that and listen to our show at the same time.  OK...hide you iPod where the flight attendent or your seat mate won't see it.

A Magic Episode

Wheeeee!  It's a magic episode.  We use the magic of electricity, audio engineering software,  and the magic talent of our three hosts and the production staff to clutter up the internet with another episode of Hangar 49.  We even made an "executive decision" to get all three of us gether for the show.  Enjoy!

Book:  Non-Stop:  A Turbulent History of Northwest Airlines by Jack El-Hai

Movie:  Executive Decision (1996)  (OK...It's a little far-fetched but, hey...Kurt Russell is really a pilot and really flies a real airplane at the start of this movie.  And, there's a northwest connection.  He played minor league baseball here in the Pacific Northwest.  Bend, OR Rainbows, Walla Walla Islanders, and the Portland Mavericks.)

Music:  Steppenwolf-Magic Carpet Ride

Website: Target Aviation Photography

Destination: Flyover Canada Theatre

We hope you like the magic.  See you next time.

It's magic-Jim is here!

Note from Management:  Yeah, yeah, yeah.  It takes a while to get these shows produced.  We recorded this program on July 13th and here it is, the middle of August.  The production staff has vacation time built up and they were not coming back to work.  Nope.  Ain't gonna happen.  So, sorry for the delay.  Now, on with the show.

=  =  =  =  =  =

So..here we are...Al and Tony living the great life at the Arlington, Washington Fly-in.  We are having the time of our lives.  There are airplanes and pilots everywhere.  Too bad Jim couldn't be here.  Wait...hold the phone....huh?  What?  He's here?  Wow!  It's about time!  Through the magic of Skype, the Internet, and very specifically-directed electrons, Jim was able to join us for this show.

We have encore appearances with a movie, a song, plus a new book to read.

And...special guests, including a brand-new certificated private pilot.  We'll listen to her story and more.

Thanks for listening.

Fun and frolic on the flightline

It's fun and frolic on the flightline and another NoeGymShow.  Yep, Tony and Al are at the Arlington, Washington 2013 Fly-In.  It's a Friday, July 12, 2013 and Jim made some lame excuse like, "um...I had to work."  Ha!  We don't believe him at all.  Anyway, enjoy the show as the aircraft taxi by our studio.  Oh...and we talk about flying.

We are watching the airplanes go by

Yep.  It's another fabulous year where we are broadcasting our podcast over the airwaves and internet from the flight line at the Arlington, WA (KAWO) Fly-In.  It's the third largest fly-in every year and we just sit a few feet from the airplanes as they taxi by to parking.  Join Al, Tony, and no Jim in this episode, originally broadcast on July 11, 2013.

A Cyber-Space Oddity


This is really an odd episode.  A cyber-space oddity.  Tony was under the weather and couldn't reach his computer mouse.  So we talked about him since he wasn't on the show to defend himself.  Then, Al went on vacation and Jim was left in charge of the production staff.  That didn't go well.  They ran roughshod over Jim and duct-taped him to a chair in the production dungeon.  When last seen, the production staff had escaped, swiped the keys to the Gulfstream, and winged back to the Caymans.  Al got back from vacation, found Jim, and saw all the clutter of the latest episode scatted around the studio.  An outside production company was hired to make some sense of all this, and the show is now ready.  The moral of the story:  Duct-tape Tony's mouse to his hand, duct-tape the production staff to their chairs, and never, ever leave Jim in charge of the wacky staff in the basement or he will get duct-taped!

Enjoy the show!

We'll have two movies for first class on this flight

Remember the good old days when you went on a loong airline flight, they showed two movies in first class.  Or even to the theater on a Saturday morning and got to see "two" movies for one price?  Well, probably only Tony (maybe Al) remember those days (Jim is just a puppy).  In the spirit of the good old days, we have two movies!  Plus our usual song, sound, and site.  We also have an interview with aviation pioneer, Norah O'Neill, plus a book, and a sound you won't hear this summer.  So, sit back, relax, and enjoy your flight.
