We are joined by David Vanderhoof the Aviation Historian for the Airplane Geeks. Tim talks to Bob Fraser, Test Pilot for the Taranis. We have our first flight test by Jonathan Duke of the Total Eclipse business jet.
We also review Tim’s new X10OurTop10, Amy’s #PodsChallenge and tackle your listener feedback.
There’s so much to cram in we forgot the out-takes!
