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!
We Can Fly!

The Hangar 49 team always strives to be on the leading edge of the aviation world wing.  We drop our landing gear onto every runway that's wide enough for our egos.  We turn a simple tune, with a simple tune, and simple lyrics into an aviation signature song.  We transform the aviator masses into antique film experts.  We turn the pages on books that enlighten generations of flyers into new demensions of wonder.  Speaking of wonder...we also wonder who writes these little blurbs before each episode.

Oh well, tune in and listen to this episode, starring (in no particular order) Jimmy Stewart, Al, John Wayne, Mark Baker, Jim, Beyrl Markham, Will Allen, Tony, with special guest stars-the entire Cowsill family.
