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.
