Hangar49 (podcasts)
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!
It's not the first mistake we've ever made!

We're In First Class! (On the wrong flight.)

Welcome to our show.  In this episode Jim talks about critical aviation topics, Al talks about his airplane in the shop, and Tony talks about his dog.  As usual, we have a great movie, great song, and a great book.  Plus, because many listeners don't understand Jim & Al's inside jokes or Tony's British humour, we brought in a professional comedian.
