Calling all AvGeeks! Join Gini and Alex as they get completely obsessed with military aircraft. They talk to the pilots, air crew and ground crew who flew them, fixed them, loved them and sometimes even hated them.

This is an original podcast series from BFBS. Written, presented and produced by Gini Carlin and Alex Gill
