APG 104 – Marshalling, Powerbacks

Well, this one’s a crazy one. I got all caught up in the winter storm which swept through the Southeastern US up to New England, and tried to record a show in the midst of it.

A 45-year-old Ukrainian man attempted to highjack a Pegasus Airlines flight, but ended up in the original destination city… although he wasn’t counting on jailhouse accommodations. 2,000 very unhappy travelers in China started a riot at a Henan Province airport. Seems customer service was a little lacking. The FBI announced a new crackdown on pointing lasers at aircraft, including a provision to reward those who come forward with information about individuals who engage in this dangerous activity. The FAA released the final rule Prohibition on Personal Use of Electronic Devices on the Flight Deck, effective in 60 days.

Feedback in this episode:

Kevin: Does the flight deck have separate temperature control?
Greg from Chicago – Reverse Thrust, Pushback without tug?
