Last week, a French fighter jet broke the sound barrier above Paris, causing a sonic boom that wreaked havoc across the city while the French Open was in play.
This week, the World of Aviation’s resident fighter pilot, Christian “Boo” Boucousis, tells host Adam Thorn exactly how it works – and its implications for commercial supersonic travel.
Plus, with the A380 now all-but retired, the team discuss Singapore’s plan to turn the aircraft into a restaurant where aviation enthusiasts can enjoy a nostalgic meal. Will anyone choose to dine in economy?
Finally, Adam and Boo ask whether UV light is the answer to cleaning planes or just a PR exercise to keep airlines top of mind while aircraft are grounded.
