We know that sometimes it’s hard to stay awake during those long flights. Hey, sometimes it’s hard to stay awake during a long episode of Hangar 49…especially for al and Tony. So, here’s a reminder: “No Sleeping During This Show!” You might miss something good. Movie – Up In The Air Interview - Christian Bailey Book – l’ll take the 18 by Scott Glut…
 
Whew! We got our March show uploaded without a minute to spare. Someday, we'll be able to get these shows done quicker by speeding up our commute with an electric air taxi. We just need to find a charging station. Learn how in our featured interview. Plus, news, music, movies, and comedy in this jam-packed show. As always, we have a few technical i…
 
We are pleased to announce that all the latest polls show that Hangar 49 is the number one aviation podcast on Mars. All the cool NASA robots love this show. Be like NASA robots.

Since this show was founded by ex-disc jockeys, we love our listeners. And since one of our hosts was once a struggling musician, we know that getting a free plug on the radio for your song (or movie) can make a big difference. So, we take requests. This month, our song suggestion came from John F. and our movie idea came from Marty D. Notice that …
 
As we sat down in the Hangar 49 studios to record this show on December 8, 2020 word that general Chuck Yeager had passed away had just been announced. We re-vamped our show to feature his book and an interview. We also reached back about 100 shows and dusted off our review of the film, “The Right Stuff.” And, as the General would say, “Ya, got any…
 
We don’t make you pay to listen to our show. (We have heard rumors that some of you think we should pay you to listen, but let’s not get off topic.) So, in this show, we give you free stuff and free money, (sort of). You’ll have to listen to get the details. Oh. Yes, this is our July show. Yes, we know it’s already August. Good, cheap, free help is…
 
With all the excitement over the Covid 19 virus, economic issues, and travel bans, we haven’t been taking airplanes up anywhere. In reality, we’ve just been taking up excess internet bandwidth with this show. There’s no better way to spend time relaxing at home than listening to this latest episode of Hangar 49. Movie: Dive Bomber (1941) Book: CFI.…
 
Our May episode kicks off with one of our favorite holidays, has a great movie, book, and song, then winds up with a hilarious comedy clip. Sit back, relax, and enjoy some quarantine with us. Movie: The War Lover Book: Skyfaring Journey by Mark Vanhoenacker Interview: Kyle Fowler/Go EZ Aerobatics Website: Trade a Plane Song: Flight School/Miguel Ca…
 
We live in crazy times. We never heard of "social distancing" until now. Luckily, aviation is a great way to put some distance between us. And, since Hangar 49 has studios in the USA and Canada, we do social distancing all the time. So, go hide in another room and listen to our latest show. Movie: Air Strike Book: A Higher Call - Adam Makos Intervi…
 
We may not take cheques (probably because we don’t sell anything) but we remember the glory days of freight dogs hauling cancelled checks from everywhere back to the banks. Plus, we have music, movies, and funny stuff…plus the latest news and another interview by our foreign correspondent, Grant McHerron. It's all in this brand new episode. Movie: …
 
In this episode, Hangar 49 spans the globe in a quest to discover how many different English language accents we could cram into one show. Four isn’t too bad. We go to Las Vegas, Oshkosh, Peru, Costa Rica, Panama, and Mexico to bring you the latest in aviation entertainment. And, if you're hungry, we found a really nice restaurant in Salzburg, Aust…
 
It’s another road show! Tony and Al were still on the road when they recorded this show. For the very first time, they operated from inside the mobile studio somewhere in the Pacific Northwest USA. We were having so much fun, we forgot to talk about our book! Guest host Philip Randolph joins in to interview our special guest. Movie: Captains of the…
 
Yep. When we take this show on the road, sometimes we get in harm’s way. First Tony had motorhome engine problems. Then, Al had motorhome engine problems. We’re lucky we weren’t trying to fly an airplane on the road. (That would be a whole different issue.) Again, we are on the road and this show was recorded on the flight line at the Arlington Bal…
 
Hey! We've got some mighty wings! It takes some big wings to get this show set up and recorded in a remote location. (Oh, OK...we admit that we "flew" down the freeway in the mobile studio.) Yep, once again we've taken Hangar 49 on location at the Arlington Balloon and Airplane Festival. Tony and Al, plus special guests Phillip Randolph and Emmy-Wi…
 
We are always reaching for the sky here at Hangar 49. it doesn't matter if it's a Cessna, a Boeing, or a drone, (or on a cruise ship looking up. Take a listen as Tony and Al babble about all this stuff. Movie: Reach for the Sky (1956) Book: Stuka Pilot By Hans Ulrich Rudel Interview: WW2 B-17 Pilot John Mscik Website: FighterSweep Song: Grass Roots…
 
For over 9 years, Hangar 49 has been the go-to source for aviation news, insight, and entertainment. And…we are the first to admit…if we don’t know the facts, we’ll make some up. Apparently, we were years ahead of things. As Tony always says, “you heard it first here.”. So…sit back, relax, and enjoy the flight…er….show. Movie: Flight 93 Book: Strai…
 
Wow! Has it really been 9 years? This little aviation podcast is growing up fast. From our humble beginnings in February, 2010 we have matured into one of the most respected and listened to aviation podcasts on the planet with listeners from around the world. But, after nearly 120 shows, we remain humble. In fact, we forgot to mention this landmark…
 
Crap! We have a bunch of technical issues! Memo to us: Don't say bad things about Microsoft...they must listen to our show. But hey...we fly little airplanes with technology from the 1940's...we got this. So, sit down and hang on. We're gonna have a show! Movie: Fortress Book: The Blue Angels: A Fly-By History: Sixty Years of Aerial Excellence Inte…
 
We pride our selves on being a “cutting edge” podcast. On this show we teeter on the edge of getting slammed into the Internet jail. Wanna know what we did? Just take a listen. (Oh…before we get arrested…we celebrate 115 years of powered flight in this-our 114th show.) The Wright Brothers The Wrong Brothers Movie: Flight Command (1940) Book: Fly Gi…
 
Yep, when we get into a bind at the Hangar 49 studios, we start to babble, and the show starts to crash, we just reach for the handle and pull the chute. Easy, right? Maybe. In this show we talk about a flight where they, "pulled the chute," right in our own backyard. Plus, another incident that "impacted" one of Al's favorite rental Cessnas. Climb…
 
Every time we do these shows, it seems like we always come in on a wing and a prayer. Like: We always “wing” it, and our audience has a “prayer” about when will the show finally be over. This show is no exception. Again, we recorded this show live at the Arlington Fly-In during July 2018 with interviews, noisy airplanes, music, books, movies, and u…
