APG 144 – Gross!
Play

Well, you see, a “gross” refers to a group of 144 items (a dozen dozen). Episode 144. Get it? Yes, it also refers to things that are unrefined and gravely deficient in civility or decency, so that fits as well!

In the news this week, we discuss the crash of an air cargo flight at Chicago Midway, a MD-88 encounter with geese at RDU, the FAA investigating several drone sitings at JFK, airline fees, and Amazon’s Prime Air.

As usual, lots of interesting questions and feedback from my awesome listeners, including topics of landing gear retraction, the ITCZ, color vision, and more.
