Welcome to another weekly round-up from the weird and wonderful world of AvGeekery!
This week we go bouncing up and down the AvGeek runway courtesy of Royal Air Maroc and Michelin.
We also get to see a very ungainly crash landing by the flying bum, get taken for a spin In the Jet Stream and find out that even complaining about an airline can now cost us money!

Fortunately, he did a better job on the second go!
