Welcome to another AvGeek roundup. This week we take a break from planning our Movember Mo to take the controls in North Korea, jump on board a helicopter to watch cars fly and see a Trump plane rip up an airport.
Dedicated AvGeeks that we are – we also take time out to read about our favourite hobby before booking a well-earned heli-vacation.
We end the week by having some fun with two movie heavyweights on the flight deck of American 809!
