I had a little bit of storage left over so I thought Id use it and make a quick round up of some of the latest news stories. Unfortunately I had to compress the file down to quite a low bit rate to make it fit, so the sound quality may not be great Sorry.
Anyway, there is a catch up with the latest for the search of MH370.
FAA cuts the Indians some slack.
Turkish A320 in hard landing incident. http://youtu.be/j9D-X918I8c http://youtu.be/Sy-UtJG3uLU
