A sometimes dark sardonic glance at the world through the eyes of a well travelled and experienced global citizen.  So who cares?  If you appreciate the odd oddity and the rare rarity, not to mention the gleeful lunacy and now and again,  a deformed reality,  read on.

    I am a big fan of the podcast, thanks so much for making them. It must take ages. I hope you are keeping busy during these strange times, I guess the flying is a bit limited. Anyway, I was wondering if it would be interesting to talk about the Air NZ crash at Mt Erebus. This has always fascinated me and I’d be keen to hear your account, as I do appreciate the detail that you give and I like the way you bring your experience to the story.
    Looking forward to the next installment,

      Hi Karen thank you for your words of support, much appreciated! I have been planning to cover this in the next few episodes – the Mt Erebus accident and attempts by some airline execs to “whitewash” the accident and the fact that CAA authorities were woefully ill prepared to probe it properly. The DC 10’s certificate of airworthiness was withdrawn and sightseeing flights to the Antarctic were halted. Interesting case. So thank you for the suggestion!
