Join Carlos, Matt, Armando and Brian Coleman for this week's show. In this week's show we learn the last ever A380 has been assembled, the A321 flying from the US to the UK is unveiled and a time when most airlines are retiring their passenger 747's, one airline is refurbishing theirs. In the military a vintage WWII B-25 Mitchell makes a forced landing in California and we learn that the U-2 will be a regular tenant at the famous RAF Fairford. Captain Nick is in conversation with Ian Palmer as he talks candidly in part three about his battle with alcohol and we go slightly off-topic as Captain Al and Matt talk to Weather forecaster Dan Holley about his unusual hobby of storm chasing.
