Flaps Extended

Flaps Extended are longer versions of the interviews and features from the main podcast. We’ve kettled them onto this page for you.

MANUEL QUERIOZ – SEPTEMBER 2011     ENDURANCE REQUIRED: 19:06
For the September 2011 edition of Flaps Podcast we spoke to famed PPL Manuel Queiroz, who flew his RV6 all around the world. Yes, all around the world, hey hey hey hey hey. As ever, we couldn’t include all of the interview into the regular edition of Flaps for reasons of time.

So here’s our full chat with Manuel.

And remember – Manuel’s written a book about his experiences. It’s called Chasing The Morning Sun.

CONCORDE – JULY 2011     ENDURANCE REQUIRED: 45.16
For the July 2011 edition of Flaps Podcast Elliott visited Manchester Airport’s Runway Visitor Park. He was pretty excited and got carried away. Like the Concorde at Mach 2, he found himself growing a few inches. And he recorded much more than we could fit into July’s podcast.

So here’s his feature in all its glory – all 45 minutes worth.

THE FEELING – JULY 2011     ENDURANCE REQUIRED: 13.01
For the July 2011 edition of Flaps Podcast we had The Feeling pop in for a chat. We fulfilled record company obligations by fleetingly mentioning their great new album Together We Were Made, but then we talked flying.

We couldn’t get as much as we wanted into the podcast for reasons of time, so here it is in full.

RAF MUSEUM AT COSFORD – JUNE 2011     ENDURANCE REQUIRED: 22.31
For the June 2011 edition of Flaps Podcast we visited the RAF Museum at Cosford. It’s a brilliant place to visit if you’re interested in aircraft – and with 100LL costing what it does, we’re glad to see it’s free too. Allow yourself some time to visit: you can easily spend half a day there. And take a camera! Here we’re speaking to the museum’s curator, Al McLean.
