And to help dig deeper into the issue we’ve brought in Chris Sloan of Airchive to talk about the MAX. He was on the American Airlines media tour last week to see the aircraft in action and talk to the maintenance crews in Tulsa helping to bring it back to service levels.

For our Patreon subscribers we have bonus content, including:

  • Drone photography: awesome or awful?
  • Sim time

And plenty more. Enjoy the show!
