Hello, fellow AvGeeks. We start our weekly roundup with a family photo courtesy of Airbus before heading over to LA to find out that family photos are sadly a thing of the past for many aviation workers!

In a busy week, we also took a trip to Switzerland for a short lake hopping flight, saw the end of some very nice flying machines and watched one chap nearly get wiped out on a runway.

In Blast from the Past, we look back at a time when the in-flight meal came with an additional side!

Would walking be faster?

You really don’t expect this to be happening at all. A real sad tale of those that help us and we probably don’t realise it!
