Thanks for downloading the Plane Safety Podcast with Pilot Pip and Captain Al.

This is a solo pod with just me (Pip). We didn't manage to find time to record a full pod this month so I threw this together at the last minute. I'm talking about some interesting recent flights including a gear down ferry and being refused permission to land in Italy.
