Welcome to our latest episode of Hangar 49. In this show we talk about Boeing, lost airliners, and the Reno air races. We feature a special song from Mary Chapin Carpenter, and a great airplane picture book.
A year ago, Jim and Al visited the Smokejumper Museum in Missoula, Montana. We discovered a cool movie titled, "Red Skies of Montana." After a year long search, we found the flick, and it's our movie of the week.
One thing is missing from this show.............Jim. Listen carefully as Al and Tony discuss the pros and cons of this concept.
Enjoy the show and keep those cards and letters coming!

This is the second episode of Hangar 49 that was recorded live at the Arlington, WA Fly-in. We did this show on Friday, July 8, 2011 on the flight line.

EVerything came back on...except the device that was saving the show audio. We don't know what we said, so we don't know what you'll miss. Just enjoy the show.

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
