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!

Got Gas? Well Tony and Al can tell you about the price of it!

What about this mythological bird?

We are back for episode 28!  (Pay no attention to the episode number on the file.  Al is so easily confused.  That's why he doesn't have an instrument rating.) 

Yes...once again we forgot to mention our 1st anniversary.  Perhaps it's because we were under the spell of the Phoenix!  Enjoy this episode and thanks for listening.  Jim, Al, and Tony.

Here we go for another exciting episode.  It's number 28...and our first anniversary.  Yep, we (meaning Jim) started this podcast in February 2010.  But, do you think we remembered to mention it on the show?  Not!

Oh well.  Join Jim and Al as we trip down memory lane (Tony is missing.   Apparently he's still on a secret mission), or the lack of it.  Now...what did we talk about?

Our song of the week:  The Ventures-Flights of Fantasy from 1968.  Check it out on YouTube:

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
