Welcome back to Hangar49 the podcast that is geared for Pacific Northwest pilots.
In episode 6 we meet John Hubbard. John tells us about Nanaimo Airport and what has become of the fees the airport wanted to charge. Nanaimo is also our destination of the week. You can see more about this airport at Nanaimo Airport's info page.
You can check out the Website of the Week at UND's Aerocast.
Song of the week is from Lighthouse. It is called One Fine Morning.
John guided us to a terrific teaser for a documentary called The Long Way Home. It is the story about the Pacific Clipper and how it flew to safety. I can't wait to see the documentary!
The Movie of the week is The Blue Max.
Until next week, blue skies and tailwinds.

Welcome to episode 5!
This time around Tony gives an update Nanaimo Airport and their landing fees. Al gives us an update on the Washington Airplane tax.
Al and I give a trip report on our flight to Seattle and back. Fish $ Chips never tasted better!
The website of the week is Places To Fly . Finally a website that allows us to look up Canadian Airports!
The Music of the week is Pink Floyd's Learning To Fly . I like the video in the link better than the original that was aired on MTV.
The Movie of the week is One Six Right . We love the history of the Van Nuys Airport. This is a movie worth watching!
We also got asked to provide material for Arlinton Fly-in Radio at the Arlington Fly-in this summer! So if you are lucky enough to attend the Arlington Fly-in you can be entertained (or bugged) by The cast of Hangar49! :)
Until next time, blue skies and tailwinds.
