As we sat down in the Hangar 49 studios to record this show on December 8, 2020 word that general Chuck Yeager had passed away had just been announced. We re-vamped our show to feature his book and an interview. We also reached back about 100 shows and dusted off our review of the film, “The Right Stuff.” And, as the General would say, “Ya, got any Beeman’s, “ his favorite chewing gum.
(Oh, apologies in advance: Al had some issues with his microphone so there might be a few audio glitch’s. As Chuck Yeager would say, “Al…ya gotta know your systems!”)

With all the fakery on the internet, robocalls to your telephone, and screaming pundits on your TV, it’s nice to find a place where real, honest, and truthful aviation information and humor abounds. OK, maybe everything on this show is not totally true, we might make up a factoid or two, make an error, or even (gasp) screw up big-time. But one thing is for sure…”We Are Not Bots!”

We are a couple of busy guys. Between Tony's work as an award-winning photographer and Al's career as a voiceover artist, we barely have time for lunch, much less flying around and doing podcasts, but here we are again. If you listen to our podcast, but don't have time to catch this whole show, do yourself a favor (favour?) and listen to our special guest, Frank Abagnale. His talk comes at about 40 minutes into this episode. Happy flying!

We don’t make you pay to listen to our show. (We have heard rumors that some of you think we should pay you to listen, but let’s not get off topic.) So, in this show, we give you free stuff and free money, (sort of). You’ll have to listen to get the details. Oh. Yes, this is our July show. Yes, we know it’s already August. Good, cheap, free help is hard to find.

We live in crazy times. We never heard of "social distancing" until now. Luckily, aviation is a great way to put some distance between us. And, since Hangar 49 has studios in the USA and Canada, we do social distancing all the time. So, go hide in another room and listen to our latest show.
