Happy Friday AvGeeks. In this edition, we bring you a bumper three stories on the US presidential runaround that has been making the news all week.
We also find out what happens when we blindfold a pilot, learn all about aviation weather and find out what United are doing to relieve the stress of the overhead locker bunfight.
After all of that, we calm down and get ready to BOARd in San Francisco with the help of our new porky friend.
