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
Aerotoxic syndrome is back in the news
And American Airlines has some ipad problems.
Enjoy and fly safe,

In this episode of Plane Safety Podcast we look at the Kegworth Air Disaster of 1989.
We have some great Squawks in Squawkbox and the usual scattering of chat, poor comedy and musical tomfoolery.
Intro & outro music by the legendary Geoff Whitehorn.
The AAIB full accident report following the Kegworth crash can be found at https://www.gov.uk/aaib-reports/4-1990-boeing-737-400-g-obme-8-january-1989
Mat Guest sent some information on Toncontin airport in Honduras
David Abbey says hi and it reminds me of my time travelling the USA
Ryan Harper has a great question about runway lengths.
You can send your squawks to firstname.lastname@example.org or via www.planesafetypodcast.com
Remember to like the show on Facebook, I leave regular updates and photo competions on the Plane Safety Pocast facebook page. It would also be great if you could leave a review of the show on iTunes.
Thanks for listening and fly safe !
