APG 142 – Diagnosis: Aviation Geek Virus
Play

Back on a 4-day trip again. First night in Springfield, MA (flew into KBDL), and the next two in Miami. We had another impromptu APG Meet-up on my first layover in Miami, this time checking out Elwood’s Gastro Pub. Rick, Nick, Chad and Jessica joined me for a fun night of beer, food, and great conversation!

In the news this week, we talk about the Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo crash, the King Air 200 crash in Wichita, mystery drones flying over nuclear sites in France, a 757 dropping its over-wing slide package in flight, and more. A lot of great feedback as well, including the dude who thought it’d be a good idea to taxi a wingless Beech Skipper to the local bar, and the dreaded bug that has bitten most of us: Aviation Geek Virus.
