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're on our 15th season of this show and we've mastered a thing or two in nearly 170 episodes. We can find great movies, songs, and books.  We can make fun of each other.  And maybe even talk about aviation...if we have extra time.  Each show is full of surprises-like this: Which show co-host and his band opened for the Rolling Stones in the 1960's? Listen to this action-packed episode to find out.

Hangar 49 has gone full circle.  That’s a wrap for our 14th season and our 165th show.  So, business is business and our corporate bigwigs for the huge media conglomerate that owns the show has put their foot down.  Yep, this show contains a commercial break, just before the news segment.  Stay tuned after that for the top aviation news of the day, movie, music, interviews, and more.  All in this great show.
