We've got trading underway in Hong Kong, hang seng is higher by about four tenths of 1%, a little weakness though on the Chinese mainland Shanghai composite is off about a tenth of 1%. Brian Curtis will join us momentarily for a closer look at trading today. Right now, a few of the sours top business stories. Jules? And AC bay president Christine Lagarde has restated officials intention to hike interest rates in July and September, the comments follow an emergency meeting last week where officials accelerated work on a tool to defend the integrity of the Euro region. Lagarde said the decision to develop this crisis measure is necessary to keep inflation under control. Anti fragmentation is a precondition to the proper transmission of monetary policy. And to those who are concerned that possibly, this would be outside the mandate. It is right at the core of the mandate. And the new crisis fighting tool is likely to feature purchases of dish from more highly indebted nations. Lagarde said that work is underway and declined to reveal details on how it's supposed to function. The measure is meant to be finalized before the ECB governing council's next scheduled policy meeting in July. Well, here in the states, JetBlue Airways has raised its offer again to purchase spirit airlines this time by $2 to 33 50 per share total value on this proposal 3.7 billion. And by the way, it does include commitments from previous proposals, a reverse breakup fee of $350 million, and an accelerated prepayment of a dollar 50 per share. Now, prior JetBlue offers were rejected after spirits said the combination would not be approved by U.S. regulators. Spirits saying its board is reviewing the offer and will provide an update to shareholders by June 30th. Well, 19 of the world's 20 fastest growing chip industry firms over the past four quarters are in China. There were just 8 at the same point last year. This according to data compiled by Bloomberg, U.S. sanctions on local champions from Huawei to hike vision have spurred appetite for homegrown components. The China semiconductor industry association said total sales from Chinese based chip makers and designers jumped 18% last year as local plants expanded capacity. We're coming up on 33 past the arrow let's travel to Hong Kong Brian Curtis is looking at markets. Information tech is okay today in Hong Kong, but other groups really leading the way higher. Yeah, I think across the region, cyclicals seem to be making a little bit of a comeback materials and energy doing well. So perhaps it's just that investors feel that they over discounted a big fall off in growth. Maybe there's a feeling that recession may be coming, but may also not be. Copper was higher today and copper has been on quite a losing streak down for 7 days in a row. Copper still is below 9000 metric ton. And these are lows that we haven't seen in about 9 months, so that's a big indication that investors have been starting to worry a lot about growth. Globally. So the fact that cyclicals are improving a little bit and maybe investors are looking at the sell off last week and figured they've discounted enough for the moment. So we see big gains here across the region. In the nikkei up 1.4%, the ASX 200 is up 1.1%. The tye X in Taiwan has been up around 1%. Less so in the China sphere, although we are seeing some pretty solid gains in property shares and that continues on from yesterday country garden up four and a half percent or real estate with gains of about 1.8%. It's a little bit more stimulus coming for property companies in China and that may be part of that. The next thing index though is up but not by much three tenths of 1% and the hang seng tech index is flat at the moment. The dollar is a little weaker. Right now the yield on the ten year treasury is 3.28% that's up 5 basis points. Juliet to you. Thanks, Brian. 34 minutes martial time for global news.

"Good advice. All right. Well, as for myself, I'm still on my monster road trip. 3700 miles so far. And I still have how many miles per gallon did you average there, max? Oh my God. The worst part was going across Texas because I had a headwind the whole way. And you know, Texas is where oil comes from Texas, right? They have the lowest octane gasoline in Texas. I couldn't figure out why. Why my car, why am I truck was just having so much trouble? It's all refined on the east coast in the West Coast. Yeah, I guess so. And by the time it gets back to Texas, what all the octane evaporates or something I don't know what, but are you using the cheapest gas you can find? Well, I used to use I was using regular until I realized I started reading the octane ratings on the pumps, how low the act I had to get mid grade or even premium just to get the octane that I'm used to getting was regular. It was terrible. But anyway, great time, I've been mostly completely off social media, which is let me tell you wonderful. I am so many emails behind. But it's great being away from all that stuff. But I still have to get from Alabama to Connecticut. So I think we'll probably for another episode or two, we'll not have a guest probably because it involves a lot more work that's difficult to do when you're on the road. But one of the things I wanted to mention is coming up is the innovations in flight event at the Smithsonian's national air and space museum. And of course, if you have been with us for a while, you know that we've attended that event for, I don't know, David, what 11, 12 years, something, 12 years, maybe now. And it's become kind of our signature event, I guess, as you could call it. That we share with our listeners and fans and all. But COVID kind of threw some monkey wrenches in that. And this year's event is a lot like last year's in that there's outside exhibits, the museum is open, so you can go in the museum. It's adjacent to dulles. But again, no special exhibitors this year. Same as last year. And in the past, we have always been the airplane Gees have always been a special exhibitor, and so we enjoy seeing meeting and talking with all of you at that event and of course we have a dinner afterward or a gathering at a restaurant local restaurant afterwards. But again, this year's event is kind of like kind of like last year's as the national air and space museum says this year's event will only take place outside with no indoor programming visitors are welcome to explore the inside of the museum on their own. And this is Saturday, July. Sorry, June 18th, 2022. And the event is from ten to three. So I'm planning on being there. I don't know if the other guys are. I've booked a weekend off from the museum, so I plan to be there. Okay, Dave Niall be there. Is hillel flying his plane in this year? I think I saw the news. I haven't heard, but okay. I'm sure that the opportunity is there, likewise, there will be enough of us there that we should, if for no reason you should always come to the museum because it is a really even in this sort of constricted event. It really is a good day, and so just because we aren't exactly recording an episode there, and I know we're being pessimistic, but things might change. Between now and June, so but we've got to be cautious and error on the fact that maybe it's not going to happen, but you never know. It might. But all I'm saying there in Micah that doesn't mean you should assume that it's going to happen. But I definitely, I think we should still plan on doing our dinner. On Saturday night, like we always do. And look forward to seeing whoever can make it. Very good. So stay tuned and we'll have more information about our participation and the meetup. The dinner, the gathering after the event has always been at the red Robin just south of the Uber hazy center in chantilly. Chantilly, Virginia. So we'll plan on that and enjoy meeting up with as many of you as possible. All right, one interesting item and this came from Micah. Tickets are on sale for the final goblet ceremony honoring the Doolittle raiders. And this is going to be April 18th. So this is coming up real fast. This will have already occurred for most of you who are listening to this. But if you do listen to this really close to when it's published, think about this April 18th, it's at 1 p.m. at the Mattie Kelly arts center that's on the campus of northwest Florida State College in niceville. And just the whole goblet ceremony with the Doolittle raiders David has always been kind of a fascinating way to celebrate that group of aviators who are no longer who for all intents and purposes are no longer with us. So yeah, if you've been around any World War II veterans, it starts getting very solemn towards the end. I know that personally from all of the events I attended with my father with his LSM group, the bell ceremony at the end of the dinners at the conventions where they wrung a bell for everyone who passed in the year. Gets longer and longer after a while. So yeah, definitely a solemn event, but a happy event, so. Yeah, and make it go. Yes, if you can, yes. Highly recommend that. And if you do go, we'd love to hear your thoughts of the event. And if you're not familiar with, I think most listeners are the dolittle raiders had goblets with their names on them. Right side up and upside down and with and they would meet annually and with the passing of each of them, they would turn the goblet over the name, of course, since it's in both right side and upside down, name visible. And so this is a final goblet ceremony last celebration of this type for the Doolittle raiders. Attend if you can. Yeah, this is the honor of the final member of colonel Richard Cole, who was the last of the Raiders who is now moved on. Yes. All right. So that's kind of a solemn note, but we're going to draw this one to a close. We want to thank you for listening. It's great to be to be back after me taking so many weeks off as I was traveling. I wanted to especially thank max triscott and rob mark for putting together the episode for last week. We had received a number of questions and emails and so forth wondering if something had happened to us. Originally, my intent had been to pre record and some episodes, which we did, but we used those up. And also to find hotel rooms each week to our hotel room each week to record a podcast, but that became that became difficult with me personally since I was traveling. So we kind of left people in the lurch a little bit about what was going on, but we're back. We're coming back in, of course, we'll return with some exciting guests in the coming weeks. We want to.

"Max T in Boston for this one particular crash pad apparently. Inspection services didn't really appreciate what was happening. Yeah, to me, this is kind of the ugly underbelly of airline business that we don't think much about. We talk a lot about the flight crews, some of whom were poorly paid, but for those who are not living somewhere close to the domicile where they're whether flight starts, they unfortunately have to commute and they often have to show up, it crazy hours. And so they need some place where they can grab a few hours of rest before they have to show up on duty. And if they're poorly paid, as many of them are, they certainly can't afford to go to a hotel room. The airline doesn't provide that for them either. And so they end up having to pay in this case, it was $300 a month for part of a communal building with 20 bunk beds in it. And if you look at the photos, it looks worse than a dorm room. I mean, it's just basically a bed bed, bed, bed, bed, all bunk beds. There is just enough room to kind of, I don't know, walk between the rows of beds here. It's pretty bad. But then to find out that it's the building is not meant for this. It's a garage. It has basically, it's an illegal garage unit that somebody has constructed illegally in which they were also storing hazardous materials. There's a picture of a gas container, great, what better thing to store in a place where 20 people may be sleeping. It was missing, smoke detectors, and maybe worst of all, no second means of egress, which means if the one entrance gets blocked by fire, these people aren't going to be getting out. Well, at least one flight attendant who stayed at the pad did complain to the Boston fire department about a broken smoke to tech, it wasn't just the smoke detector that they thought was a problem. They thought that this was literally a death trap and so they shut it down. But it just kind of goes to kind of an ugly side of the airline industry that I feel badly for these folks because jeez. I mean, this is not a pleasant way to have to conduct the beginning of your trip. Or end a trip because sometimes you end up back at your base and if that's not where you live, you can't get home. You go to the crash pad for the night. And I visited a few crash pads down at midway years ago. And sometimes it would be somebody has a couch and extra couch in the living room and they go, hey, you can have that, you know, and I always wondered, well, so what are you doing if the guy that owns this or lives here wants to watch TV? And the guy's just gonna let you just put earplugs in or something and I thought, oh my God, what I've done with work, I can not think of anything I value more than my privacy. The last thing I want to do is spend an evening with a dozen people and you know some are just going to be partying. Some are just going to be gabbing away till all hours of the day and night and oh, that's really restful. I don't know, but I was lucky enough not to have to do it. So I wouldn't have liked it if I had, but. I'm curious to see if this remains just a one off kind of incident or if this spurs some kind of follow on action, some something to address the safety of these kinds of crash pads or if it's just buyer beware. It's up to the individual to make an assessment of where they're going to spend the night is safe or not. Well, you would have thought that people that are grown up enough to handle the cabinet in the back of an airplane would have been aware enough to walk into a garage and say, oh, this is it. Wow. Well, wait a minute. There are gas cans out in front here, and you know, this stuff could catch fire. I mean, I don't know, maybe it's the pilot in me max that is always looking at the stuff going. This is not a good idea. But maybe there are, I guess a lot of people just don't think like that. Or don't care. Or don't have the choice. I mean, I think a lot of this is driven by economics. Yeah, I mean, I'm lucky enough that when I was working for a corporation, hey, they paid for me to have a place to stay. And the airline is just not really set up economically to do that. Yeah. Yeah. Rob's making a face, but well, I mean, yes, you're right. It's always, it's always economics to some point, but nobody forced, you know, well, how many people, 20 people? I mean, they wouldn't all be there at the same time. That's the way those places are planned is that when max is out flying, David can have his bed because there's nobody there anyway. And I mean, they clean the sheets. At least once a quarter, I think. So whether they need it or not, but no, I'm kidding. No, but I don't know. Yeah. I think you have to be young to do this too because I can't imagine anybody with a house or a family or anything else. Someplace else sleeping in one of these places knowing it's a death trap. But I could be wrong. Well, you look at the high cost of living of Boston, if that's your domicile, I totally understand why people choose to live in a rural area where they can.

"I think that had the engine problem and one of them blew up on takeoff here out of Chicago. Was that a couple of summers ago? I mean, those airplanes are still grounded because there's still not certain they have that were those prats on that thing max. On the year. Yeah, when it blew an engine up on take off, oh no, I'm sorry, it wasn't here in Chicago. It was someplace else. Maybe Houston or something. But they still haven't put the airplane back in service because they want to be sure. I just think, in general, when it comes to losing control of the airplane, so often and max Wes will probably agree so often lost a control has to do with the, with the humans on board and but again, I'm just surmising. Yeah. And if that had happened in the U.S., that would be automatic report to the NTS baby. You've got to report any kind of problems with the flight controls. So well, and that's the BEA's job too over there. I mean, BEA is the equivalent of sort of, but wait, no, there's an air accidents investigation group. I can't think of the exact title of it in. No, that's the BEA. That's the BEA. They do the France. Yes. In France. There's also a recording of the air traffic control conversation with the pilots. There's a site called air live, and they have a video up on YouTube, which is sort of an edited playback of the ATC recording, but we'll put that link in the show notes. You'll be able to see that video in the show notes, and you can listen to it. The conversation is primarily in French, but there's English subtitles so you can and people shouldn't listeners shouldn't be too surprised that so much of it is in French to despite the fact that that's Charles De Gaulle airport and the language air traffic control is English except that I found in my brief flying experiences in France that when a controller or a pilot wants to make a point that somehow isn't being communicated, they switch back French. And I bet you that things were so emotional. The last thing on their mind was speaking in English, but again, that's me. Well, and that came out pretty clearly, regardless of the language, you could tell those pilots were stressed just by the nature of the way they were talking. This was not your standard calm. Yeah, we've got it all under control. This was, oh my gosh, I'm panicked. I don't know what the heck is going on type of tone of voice. So I'm sure going through their mind was something like, hey, is this something reminiscent of the 7 three max scratches? Am I in big trouble here? Yeah, they clearly were concerned. All right. Another landing emergency is reported from Reuters. This is Costa Rica airport reopens after DHL plane, skids off runway in emergency landing. This was a 7 5 7 200 cargo plane. And they made an emergency landing. Shortly after takeoff and when they came down, they ended up exiting the runway in kind of rather dramatically broke the plane in two. But no one was harmed. The crew was not harmed. Although one report says that there was a precaution, one member of the crew was taken to be evaluated, but I guess, I guess that worked out okay. And they're attributing this to at least at this point, to a hydraulic system failure, and that's what caused the pilot to request an emergency landing. Yeah, they had just departed from Costa Rica. And they immediately said, hey, we are coming back. I don't know if you guys saw the video. It's not here in the link that we've got up here, but I saw a video that was shot from. It looks like an airport worker who was on the ground next to one of the jetways. So clearly somebody who was in a non public area who happened to be shooting this landing with a cell phone, and you can see a touchdown, everything looks normal and everything looks normal. And then suddenly the aircraft just without warning veers sharply right. It was almost as if perhaps the right landing gear collapsed. Would that be correct? Yeah, that would send it quickly to the right. So something happened where this aircraft just very, very quickly kind of turned on a dime and started heading for the weeds. I last night I was discussing this with some other guys and one of the, one of the other pilots was a 7 8 7 pilot that actually began his flying career down in Costa Rica. And he managed to dissect it and point out some things that most of us missed when we watched the video. He said, now of course it was the left hydraulic system on the aircraft that failed. And he was able to do this right off the top of his head and talk about the items in the aircraft that were not available when you lose the left hydraulic system, one of them was normal breaking and he said, so watch one this this airplane touches down. And he said, watch the smoke on the left gear. And so we all went back and watched it. And sure enough, you see the left gear, the left main gear starting to smoke. And he said, to me, that's a wheel that that's a gear train that's locked up because it's just skidding. And but then a two, he also mentioned the certain spoilers will work and certain ones will not, and so they had normal braking on the right, and I think the right reverser would have worked. And so to us, like I said, it seemed to make more sense that it was something like that that yanked the airplane over to the right pretty hard when somebody got on the brakes or pulled that bucket on the right side because again, the left one didn't work, but bore that left gear was already locked up when they touched down. And but again, we won't know for ages, but I was impressed with this young fellow about how much he got from the video that maybe 8 of us looked at first and we just went, I don't know, it looks like he touched down on the airplane broke. You know, but he saw details that all of us missed. And so I would tend to decide with some of what he mentioned to us last night that that gear was locked up on the left side as soon as they touched down. Now, exactly why I don't know, but that will remain to be seen. And we will find out. So there's a couple of incidents that are kind of interesting on the face of them in the look forward to the investigations that result..

"Geeks podcast. This is episode 697 of the show where we talk aviation. I'm max flight. I'm back in joining me is David vanderhoef our aviation historian from the American helicopter museum. Is this thing on? What are we doing here? Do you remember David? I don't know. It's like it's been forever that we've actually recorded a show where this is Monday night. How has it been like this? But no, no, no, no. We went back to Sunday nights quite a while ago. Oh, no wonder why I've been missing it. Dang it. So with us is max trescott. He's hosted the aviation news talk podcast. He's a national CFI of the year, and these expert on this series aircraft. Hello, everybody. Great to be here. Thanks for joining us again. And also, we have rob Mark contributing editor to business and commercial aviation, part of the aviation week group. And he's publisher at jet wine dot com. Hey, good evening to everybody. And I just wanted to start off with a rant because David got his picture sticking his head outside the door of the tardis over the weekend and I'm really envious. So David, will they bring that tardis? I know the listeners have no idea what we're talking about probably, but it's okay. It's a distraction. Do you think that man will bring it to the museum? No, but you could check out Chicago tardis, which is the largest convention other than gallifrey one, which is out in California. And that occurs Thanksgiving weekend, break down the road from you, so you could go visit a tardis anytime you want, rob. Wow. Now he tells me. And of course, people who watch Doctor Who know exactly what these people are talking about. And with all of our UK listeners, that's about a third of our population. Well, that may be true. David, between I'm sorry. I didn't mean to distract everybody. You certainly did. I want to ask David a question though. David between Star Trek trekkies and Star Wars fanatics in Doctor Who, what do you call them? Freaks. Sorry, sorry. Which do you think is the most rabid group? Well, fan this weekend in Philadelphia. I'm one of those bizarre people. I will give a shout out to Randy, who was dressed up as a full Mandalorian, one of our listeners who got to spend some time with. I also got to hang out in the tardis and go to a Star Wars, the highlight of my thing, though, is I got to meet Brent spiner for the first time. And if you don't know who Bren spider is, he's from Star Trek. He's lieutenant commander or commander data. Ironically, that's not why I got his autograph in his photograph. He's also in my all time favorite musical, which is Sunday in the park with George, was in the original cast with Bernadette Peters. And Mandy Patinkin. And ironically, a book just came out by Robert lupine, who wrote the text with Stephen Sondheim's music. And I got data or Brent to sign the book. And it was very funny because Brent spent an extra ten minutes looking at the book with me because he says lapine was rude enough to send me a digital copy, but I hadn't ever seen the hard copy yet. So this was the first time he actually got to see the book and it was a really joyful experience that I got to meet someone I've always wanted to meet. The other part about it was I got to meet a fellow podcaster by the name of Ken deep, who way, way, way, way, way, way back. Was one of the first podcasts I was the first podcast I listened to called doctor. Pod shock. And it was a Doctor Who podcast. And it was my very first podcast. And it was, can you sort of encourage me to go into podcasting? So after 15 plus years of listening to him and I finally got to meet him in person. So it really was a joyful experience and one of the things I commented to amber about your question specifically, max was, there doesn't seem to be the rivalry anymore. It used to be, you know, if you were a trek fan, you weren't a Star Wars fan. If you were a Star Wars fan, you weren't a trek fan. And no one ever knew what Doctor Who fans were. That's all changed now. You had people in Star Wars costumes going to trek lectures and vice versa. And there's really a community now, like kind of like airplane Gees and going to OshKosh and stuff where you get to share in the community. And even though your fandom may not necessarily be the same fandom as somebody else's, you get your fans and there's a lot less negativity and it was a very family oriented event. Like OshKosh, it was grandparents seeing taking their children taking their grandchildren all at the same time to share in the love of items and quite often you heard things like, well, the first thing my daughter and I bonded with was watching next generation or watching Doctor Who or so it really was a wonderful experience and it's a lot like going to sun and fun or going to OshKosh where you know it's a group of like minded people and you come out of it as a very positive experience. Well, it's like sun and fun, but with much better cheesesteaks I would imagine. Yeah, true, but you know it was two soda two Pepsi and a two pretzels and that was a $22 bill. And some hoagies, I hope. No, that was that was all I could basically get in the convention center. But it was a really, it was a very good day. It was the first Saturday I had taken off in the museum and about two and a half years other than forced take off. So it was a very good day and I definitely, I recommend everybody celebrate your fandom, whether it's listening to us or listening to other podcasts or just enjoy yourself and realize that you're not alone and you have people out there who are like minded and we now have the ability to do that internationally and that's one of the things Ken mentioned was we would have without podcasting would not have the Friends and experiences we've had with other people across the pond or down in Australia.

"Yeah somehow fell into one of those traps. At least that's what it appears. We haven't seen the ntsb report yet so anyway. Lots going on aviation is talk podcast. So what's this with leaning out. I mean i obviously am where that but why. Why do you have to lean these. Why don't they lean themselves out. Why why why. The engines had to be manually leaned out. Y'all do that in your car. Interestingly one of those aircraft you don't have to lean out That would be the the older serious. Sr twenty s because they had an altitude compensating fuel pump in them. So when you were at full throttle as you climbed it would just lean automatically. The higher higher you went But most aircraft except for the turbocharged ones. If you don't lean you're going to have progressively less and less error as you climb and then you're got to have an excessively rich mixture so there is an ideal mixture of kind of an ideal ratio of fuelled air and most airplanes are set up. You know at sea level to do that without hardly any adjustment but as you get hired higher that ratio gets out of whack and different airplanes have different kinds of instrumentation. And so there's just a lot of different ways to delete for the optimal point prior to take off from mountain airport. These things aren't fuel injected Some are some. Aren't i mean if it's spring on carburetors. I can see that. But i guess but In fuel injected motors. They measure the air mass early. Some of them do and you know just a mixture based on the mass of the air entering the engine but aircraft in aviation engines. Don't do that. Most of most of them don't Oh what's the matter with these guys. Let's get to aviation engine. Engine talk bags. We should start. Who podcast they're probably. Don't have enough of them out there. Let's let's do that. But max i know. This sounds kind of crazy. But i can remember many years ago. A fellow that i knew very well Who had a A champ which was a little Hundred and five hundred horse hundred and five horse lycoming at it Live just curious to people flew the damn thing all the way out from chicago. Sorry from a place. I know to colorado and when they were taking off from colorado springs which is sixty sixty two hundred feet or something like that he didn't know nothing about no leinen nobody ever taught him nothing about leaning and his scroll down the runway and rolling and rolling and rolling and rolling and rolling. Finally ease the stick back and said okay. This isn't what it's supposed to do climbing. Maybe two hundred feet a minute and that particular pilot got back home. They asked me. I they asked him. Why didn't you lean it. And he's a guy it's crazy the silly stuff that they don't they don't emphasize but then when you think about teaching somebody to fly and what what kind of follows through over the years of your career. There's so many simple things that you learned. I didn't i didn't know that. Wow that's interesting. And i mean just leaning but i'm saying that there's a bundle of things but this one can absolutely absolutely take your life and and you raise a great point which is people who live out in. The flatlands may never have to lean their aircraft. Maybe they should but they never get in a situation where it becomes critical that they didn't do it out to hire airports and yes suddenly a practice that you didn't perform in the past suddenly becomes life critical so like the rest of the world remember to lean in. When you're flying your airplane there you go get an extra job. That's right economy. Rob mark anything going on in your world. Wait a minute. I think you know. I'm beginning to think something. I think venture was interesting. And i'm trying to remember something Occurred something uneventful occurred Actually so for those people that haven't didn't catch on when you introduced me. I'm afraid i'm no longer with flying magazine. I won't get into the. Who's the wiser whatever's except the magazine was sold and that's the way it goes when there's Offer new management So i'm Between writing jobs at the moment But also giving me some time to think about what i want to be when i grow up and I think it's it's actually turning out to be pretty valuable and pretty interesting. I think there's some great great possibilities coming up cool all right. He's always possibilities. Good time to jump in that. Twenty twenty four election cycle is just around the corner. All right you you kinda weren't supposed to say anything yet. Spilled binding boy. i mean. now. I'm gonna be aunt. Mark your calendars for twenty twenty four. That would be rob mark. Yeah i mean rob for president may make a mark for president. They come in mark to improve government. You got your new campaign adviser rob to make it humour humorous. We could use that right so and all that stuff. I think that's really good stuff anywhere and david things Cranking along at the american helicopter museum. They are We finally set up one of our newest exhibits. We have a pair of kittyhawk flyers that we got late last year that dower on. Display the kitty hawk. Either tall single person aircraft That was designed to only require two hours of learning to fly and they produced a little over one hundred of them in we have two of them subsequently have gone taken out of production to focus on more either tall urban air mobility vehicles. But so they're interesting and we are getting prepped for october. Where we've got a month long celebration of our twenty fifth anniversary. We started in nineteen ninety-six. We will have a tuskegee airmen exhibit for eight weeks. We will be debuting our latest restoration. Which is a sikorsky r six called the gander express. Which is the first helicopter. That coastguard used to recover people from an airline crash and we will be doing our stem weekend so and of course i'm trying to get to store up the writing and this weekend on sunday believe it or not is world helicopter day so you enjoy. That thought that if it wasn't for helicopter saving lives. That's that's why one of the slogans of the museum so we look forward to world helicopter day next week. Don't forget is national aviation day or happy birthday mr right now right very good very good well. We haven't across the pond segment from our friend peter johnson. Let's listen to that.

"So i think it doesn't have nearly as much in common as the other segments of the industry Do and so. Yeah it does sort of get left behind a little bit. I think whenever people start talking about aviation and This is Got the name. Thomas w has We all fly gallery. Because the thomas w has foundation contributed ten million dollars towards this so. I don't know much about that foundation in fact i don't know anything about that foundation actually But that's that's where the funding came from But since we're talking about the smithsonian's national aerospace museum we probably should should mention that As we record this episode the innovations in flight Event is still scheduled for saturday august. Twenty first at the airspace museums. Hoover hosie center in chantilly. Virginia course we attend every year. will accept last year because the event wasn't held This year's event is going to be very limited due to policies put in place by the smithsonian regarding the cova pandemic and there will be no special indoor programs as has been the case in the past and including us There there is not timed entry for the museum itself but there are timed tickets required for the outside displays You can get those free online at the museum website And they are for either the morning ten. Am to twelve pm or the afternoon. Twelve thirty two to thirty. I think there was six hundred for the two thirty when i looked this afternoon. And three hundred for the ten thirty admission so it's other still plenty of tickets out there for everyone that everyone to go in and besides there's it's sierra space museum there's plenty of things to look at There's an x wing now in the restoration hall at that flew in over you know and other other new exhibits so i mean it'll be don't it's the air and space museum you if you're in the area and having other aircraft magically appear for the afternoon it's a celebration of things with wings that's rotary or so it's it's fun besides i'm kind of partial to the hashtag but that's just me. Hello is going to be flying. His plane in. I'll be attending. David is as well Now as you probably know from previous years we meet up at the red robin in chantilly virginia at the end of the afternoon and At least as of this time we are You know planning to do that as well for anyone who would like to attend. I'm i'm thinking the The group would be smaller than in the past But that's that's fine Against red robin in chantilly virginia. It's at Chantilly crossing lane After after the event But things could change you never know So for updates You can watch the innovations in flight channel in our slack listener team or Follow us on twitter at airplane geeks. And if there's any any changes to any of that will let you know all right fuel shortages aviation fuel shortage could affect aerial firefighting so Air travel dropped. We had a pandemic. the supply of jedi aviation fuel was scaled back. Now now we have air travel rebounding but the logistics process for fuel has not as we have some shortages and that includes the fuel supply for firefighting in some air tanker basis are In a little bit of difficulty although as This one article points out wanting to kind of contributes to this is that you don't necessarily know wear a wildfire is going to explode in it can happen suddenly in when that does than the demand for fuel in that area can Can really sore. So it's difficult to predict you know when you're going to need a lot of fuel to support aerial firefighting But and it's not just aerial firefighting that's been impacted by this The airlines have. We've seen united american airlines in the past taking some actions because of fuel shortages. So we have supply chain issues all over this country as a result of the pandemic. All you have to do is go to cosco and you find shortages of this then the other this is yet another thing that's been impacted by the pandemic. We all know that. Have fuel Of all kinds dropped in volume tremendously last year and part of what happened was that the refineries started switching the pipelines over and started pumping more gasoline and diesel less jet fuel. So now there's less jet fuel going through those pipelines. Obviously they've got a switch that around a little bit. There's been a shortage of trucks and truck drivers and you add that all up hard to believe but we have supply shortages of jet fuel. Now this i started to emerge in the north west. I would say astern seeing this probably a couple of weeks ago. But now there are reports of other parts of the country that are having a shortages of jet fuel as well as you mentioned some of the airlines are dealing with it by tinkering fuel used to be airlines would take just the minimal amount of fuel. They had to you on a particular trip because it costs money to carry excess fuel that you're not gonna use on the other hand you don't want your aircraft stuck at an airport. That has no fuel. so now. They're loading up the airplanes with more fuel so that they don't have to get Fuel at airports that have shortages. So it's really pretty amazing dynamic. That's kind of played out over the last few weeks. See for a minute there..

"Is when you get them back together. After the couple of months you know and you haven't seen each other you haven't talked to each other. You know the first fifteen minutes or so the plaza and tree and then it immediately reverts back to fighting in squabbling. Like you've always done that's true. Okay all right next Next up spirit airlines has been in the news recently a lot Along with words like meltdown and canceling thousands of flights Spirit airlines's canceled more than two thousand flights All across the united states and it's been a disaster. They've been long lines of passengers trying to find flights We see it Fort lauderdale international airport in florida. At point the wait to re book was as long as two and a half hours on a particular day and the line grew from there So what's what's the reason for all these Cancelled flights well. Spirit says it was caused by weather by technology outages by travel volume in staffing shortages. One of the problems was cruise. Timing out With with delays The inability of the system to handle the increasing volume of passengers Apparently number crews timed out so that just compounds the problem But it really got pretty poor. Planning poor poor planning a lot of problems. Yeah and it wasn't just as you said it wasn't just one but i can only speak to the the crew part and of course there was a there was a pilot shortage Before the pandemic and then one of the pandemic they want oh well. We don't need pilots anymore. No big deal. We're gonna park the airplanes and then this ramp up caught almost everybody Napping all the airlines. And but i think this wanted spirit started off as a weather problem if i'm not mistaken but then it. It just intensified because pilots are sitting around on the ground waiting to go. They get a three hour delay. That gets tacked out of their their flight. Time and If they are only allowed to do so many hours a day and They can't even start the flight if they know they're not going to be able to complete it and They go sorry guys. Gotta get some new pilots. Well then you've gotta find reserves and then you gotta wait for them to get there and It it just it just got crazy but it wasn't just spirit As i recall spirit think was the The worst. I've been for the last week following a piedmont teen who's one of the Cable reporters. Who's the aviation reporter. And i just going back there. His twitter four days ago. He said that they are now. In the fifth straight days of cancellations and people are furious. Three days ago. He said that Roughly one third of today's schedule has been canceled. Cancellations peaked at four hundred and fifty cancellations. Yesterday they later he said that twenty two percent of the saturday schedule had been cancelled. And as we're recording us now he says spirit cancellations are tapering off after a bad week of quote. Overlapping operational challenges. Ninety-one sunday flights eleven percent canceled so far. Anyway i think that They may have started out with one problem. But i think the big issue is that they just lack the resources to deal with the cascading problems. They are low cost carrier one of the ways they keep costs. Low is to have less staff also there in less of a position to recover because many of the locations that they traveled to only have a single flight a day to that location whereas you look at someone like american. They may have four flights to the same location per day which means if one flight gets canceled. Well you've got lots of room to put people on those other three flights here. You may not have room to put people on the one flight. You have twenty four hours later. And they don't serve Some of these locations every day of the week so there have been literally thousands of passengers who've been stranded at airports unable to get back. So yeah i think this has been a just a colossal meltdown for spirit in particular. It's been much less worse for for the other airlines. Of course the big question will be will people leave spirit in droves. Because of this. And i think the answer we've talked about in the past is heck no as long as the ticket is a quarter cheaper. Twenty five cents less. They'll continue to fly most. I think you're right. And and of course spirit also doesn't have the the inter line agreements that the majors do which means that if if american loses a flight They can try and get your book done on delta united or or south west or something but but spirit is They're all out there by themselves and This is what people say. Well you wanted a cheap flight. This is what you get. Yeah yeah and you know you don't have to go back. To many months to recall experts Analysts and others Predicting that the recovery for the airlines would take until twenty twenty three. Some people even said twenty twenty four right and Yeah so. I imagine that airlines in the industries are planning around that kind of slow gradual recovery. And so having this Jump back as quickly as it has at least so far course who knows where it will go. We tend to over. Shoot these things right so The various served rearing their heads and various countries. And there's no guarantee that some things like what we saw last year good could reoccur Saw difficult times to To make planning if you're a corporation this isn't over either. I mean just because this happened this time and they seem to be getting back on. Track doesn't mean it's not going to happen again. Tsa reported just a few days ago that they had the fewest number of passengers boarding airplanes since sometime in june. So there's been a little bit of a turn down in pastures so we'll see if that continues But if it does that will probably take a little bit of the pressure off of the airlines. Since they won't have quite as many people to deal with all right From aaron space magazine. A new galleries celebrates the variety. That is general aviation and this is Kind of great news the smithsonian national air and space museum has a new general aviation gallery that they are scheduled to open in two thousand twenty two. And this is the thomas w haas we all fly out Gallery and the intent is that will tell the story of gpa. How would impacts everyday life how it's influenced society and it will feature interactive exhibits and audio visual displays so That's kind of interesting. I i don't. I don't recall ever seeing sort of a Gpa focused Gallery of this magnitude. I remember a cessna one fifty sitting on the main floor somewhere all by itself. And that was. I don't know that's just one of the ones but i know there was a king air hanging up i think or something but you're right not Not that much. Except i see jerry mocks lady get an error but but again it wasn't that much of a focus on. Gee i don't believe yeah. Well i think gee as the poor step child of aviation if you look at where all the the volume and the dollars in all the the money is. It's in both the airlines. It's in the military at to some extent in the public service sector police helicopters and then everything else is kind of ge which is kind of funny we. that's a segment of the industry. That's really defined as the absence of other parts of the history..

"The pilots really did a bad job because never wants to. They say mayday mayday mayday. They really were Took them a long time to even include the word emergency and so a lot of time was lost on the other hand rob. I think you're more focused on the controllers. I think what i meant was to be mutually exclusive. But i mean they were both terrible. I mean but you know what bugged me about. the pilots. Part is that. I wondered if the crew kind of thought it's probably a warning light failure or something like they didn't seem to be concerned. I mean at least not to me from the tone of their voice I would have probably been a little more emotional But again and when the controller could not understand what the pilots were saying. I can't believe took the captain as long to say something. I forgot how long it was into it before. He said we've got a fire or something like that. Four minutes five minutes. I it just neither one of the groups seem to really feel very Concerned about this. Yeah there was a lot of repeating asking a question hearing the answer. The question getting asked again the answer given again back and forth back and forth And at at one point Ask after the controller asked several times if there was any hazardous material on board The the flight crew said yes and then the controller had to ask. Well what and they said lithium batteries. If i had. I don't know i if if i had a you know a a fire in the hold indicator going off and i knew that i had lithium batteries in the whole. Yeah you would think that it would be a little bit more concerning than it seemed to be. But we'll share. Look at that seven four. That went in and visited germany somewhere. I think This may ten years ago and they had a lithium ion battery fire in the cargo. Hold and the airplane crashed before the crew could get the thing on the ground But again that was kinda my point out you know what's in the back and you think you've got to fire back there and you're arguing with the controllers. May we've got a fire. Yeah i mean. I don't know i don't get that. i know they. They never did say. That's promo code. David oh i didn't. I didn't i must have missed that. Then yes. I guess we were hoping you okay. You know you guys are always talking about eighty-eight then communicate am i right. Yes and you guys are complaining. That there wasn't enough communicating. Maybe they should have been focusing on the flying. You know the whole time the whole time. They kept flying further away from the airport. Now if it were me. I would have said. May mayday mayday. I have already started returning back to the airport. And why why continue to be polite and wait for them to give you permission to make that. Turn once you've declared emergency. You were allowed to basically violate any regulation. You need to to the to deal with the extent of the -mergency so yes sure you're not following your clarence but you're trying to save your life so i was extremely frustrated that i didn't see a level of urgency that that i thought the situation required. Did we ever find out that. The aircraft actually have a fire. I looked it up. The aircraft was on the ground for four days and that it departed so who knows what happened during those four days if it did have a fire. It must've been fairly confined to particular area. You know the on the communication It was interesting because the controllers had especially the woman at the beginning of the The video Had very strongly heavy accent. Asian accent That i was somewhat difficult for me to understand. i guess probably if you fly in that region That part of the world. You probably become more familiar with An accent like that But it was. The english was just Below the level that i would have expected. I guess i'm saying well. I think The pilots side. They kept repeating that. They had an an unsealed. That said cargo. F- let's see fire cargo Aft- i think probably probably after is not one of those words that gets taught to controllers I think it would have been sufficient to say fire and not continue to you know had words in there that controllers might not know n don't need to know that's right and then the The at least for americans the the controller handbooks as something in there. About if you if you can't figure out a good way to communicate the situation just use plain words you know we're on fire or we are turning back or something that it is much more much less difficult to confuse and rob so subtle to hundred. Did you get that pun. Ladies and gentlemen. He wanted him to use plain words. Oh i missed it. Were all missed right. I remember this. I remember this show. Yes right yeah. I think yeah together. In the music you know questionable. Can you say eighty three eighty now again. We won't go there. No no oh all right. Oh oh we're going to start out you know. The nice thing about family is when you get them back together. After the couple of months you know and you haven't seen each other you haven't talked to each other..

"Better understand what content they want during their inflight experience and tic tac is one of the platforms. They love on the ground and we're thrilled to work with via sat to give customers free access to tick talk while they're in the air as well. I don't know do you think The typical american customer american airlines customer is a tic tac user or or is it just me. That's kind of living in the past. No i don't think they are. In fact i'm sitting here going. Why are we talking about this. I just looked it up the typical. Us audience tick tucker sixty percent. Female forty percent. Male sixty percent are between the ages of sixteen and twenty four twenty. Six percent are between the ages of twenty five and forty four. So yeah it skews pretty young and i would say it probably skews younger than the average american airlines customer. So big deal about it. I listened to tick-tock or a oh right i. I watched tic tac right. It's on your wrist right. It was going to say you watch the watch right. It's funny of all the things that for years we've all dealt with. There is no streaming on an airliner. We're not doing it period because it's too much bandwidth And so this is the first thing american chooses to to stream. I dunno sounds weird. But i think they're hoping their audience is going to skew younger eventually. Perhaps or maybe they're trying to project that image of being. I don't know hip or tune with the times. Perhaps youthful exuberance. Well maybe it's a partnership with The owners attack. Maybe they have put up some money. And said hey. We'll help pay some of the cost because we would like to promote our platform to more people who aren't currently using it well and the fact that platform is can be done in packets of bits and bytes because the average chick talk is under two minutes so i mean from a technological standpoint. It might actually be the fact that it's short things to stream not necessarily long hourly things that most people don't watch tick-tock for more than a couple of minutes or you know unless unless they happened to be a fourteen year old who's constantly obsessed with it but do you think they will support uploading to tic tac from the airplane this way we could watch all of those fights and all the violence of passengers in real time absolutely. I think i think absolutely you should be able to though the upload speed means that you probably. It'll be like setting postcard from europe when we were growing up that the upload will occur about thirty hours after your flight lands but besides that it'll be good all right. I've changed my position. I think tick-tock talk on. The airlines is going to be great well. There is one guy who doesn't really take that position in us. Senator marco rubio the republican from florida and he sent a letter to doug parker the american airlines chairman and ceo. He did this. After american announced this innovative partnership with tick-tock and senator rubio says as you know in twenty nineteen the us government launched a national security review of tick-tock do pro data privacy and data security concerns a review which remains active to this day. He goes on by partnering with tick-tock. American airlines is now lending its brand credibility to accompany that endangers national security and the data security of tens of millions of americans. Many of them minors. I urge you to suspend american airlines innovative partnership quote unquote with tick-tock while the us government completes its investigation into the national security risks posed by the chinese owned hap-. Okay adverse might position. I'm opposed to it. I'm just wondering just exactly. What would the chinese government or the chinese military do with all of these millions of tick-tock videos of people falling off their skateboard dancing in their dining room. I don't show little to prisoners of political prisoners perhaps or something. I you know i. I don't know i don't know it. It's very strange that they they chose to To partner up with With tic tac but I doubt very seriously doug is going to change his ways Based on what. Marco rubio has to say. I guess we will see Curious to see what the responses and curious kind of the word you know. It was in my mind right now. The whole thing is kind of curious it just doesn't seem like You know the the kind of thing that i would have put on the top of my list of things to do to improve customer experience. But hey what the heck i guess. They'll try and see how it works especially considering how many flights american has been cancelling Which i think comes up another story but it does. It does but first. Let's talk about an interesting video that we've watched on youtube This is about a national cargo. Boeing seven four seven dash four hundred. That was departed from tokyo's narita airport for seoul south korea and during the climb out at about twenty seven. Thousand feet reported a fire indication in a cargo department and this This video is Sort of reconstructs. The flight based on the The atc communications but Max trescott it is kind of an interesting listen a little bit concerning as well so it runs about ten minutes. It's largely audio that they did create a map that shows roughly the position of the aircraft and the terms that it's making i looked it up. This incident was from july twenty ninth. So it's very very current and recent and i think we all would agree that the communications were very ineffective between the pilots and the controllers now. Interestingly we were all talking about this just before we hit the record button and robert. I think came up on opposite sides of it. I said wow you know..

Canceled Flights (MM #3792)

"The Maison with Kevin Nation. I know that people are really wanting to get back to normal, but do you get the sense sometimes? The man above says, it's not quite time yet. All this past week, I've been seeing where a lot of airlines have been canceling. Flights specifically Spirit Airlines canceling. 50% of their flights like four or five days in a row. And people are just frustrated, they're stuck in airports, their wage trying to find alternate Transportation. They're stuck trying to get back from vacation or going somewhere and losing out. This to me is a big red flag and says, you know what, maybe you should rethink these things. Maybe I should hold back for. Now again, I understand how often disrupted our lives have been over the course of the last almost two years, but in the scope of things, really, not that big at. I'm sure I'd love to get back to normal. I know you'd love to get back to normal, we all want to, but for many reasons we're not there, yet wage, but sometimes this is just a message from above, probably not want to be flying right now. It's not the time yet but something's telling me hold off just a little bit longer. And every time I see these Airlines canceling, flights tells me to stay away from the airport just a little bit longer dead.

"They weren't in their worst can in terms of traditional repairs. Right milk's expired. Fred gone through the manual. Always let me down with this guy. Probably very tells are limited but when police arrived after being called for the gunshots. They found this crazy. Sob outside his home in the alleyway. Yelling incoherently with a gun laying in the middle of his street so he had dropped the gun on the road and was pacing and the alleyway incoherently screaming. Witnesses came forward and told the police what happened after they held the guy away. Put him in the car because they didn't want the crazy man. The neighbors seeing talking to the cops probably told the police that the man had been placing soda cans into his fridge and like one exploded so they can see us one of the soda cans somehow just like pop made allowed popping noise. I don't know if it was a two liter can and when the popping noise went off in the fridge he started shooting out at uncontrollably. Because he was scared or spooked. Ghostbusters wants to many times. The fritsch tiny sex dolls was in there with a gun. Yeah exactly well it gets goes was in there. It gets more bizarre fella. You're not far off. Because he's been watching the indian covered. I'll repeat you're not far off. When asked why he shot the fridge. The man rationally explains that there are people who live in the basement that are trying to kill him and that no no soda can exploded. It was the people in the basement. That shot at him. I so he shot back through the bottom of the fridge into the people at the basement but a quick search the house show that there was no-one living in the basement because there was no basement to the house at all so there wasn't bookmarks barely. They don't know about the basement. Okay right the cops couldn't find the base conflict by design. He tried to people. Want you to think that there's so he got all the way. I guess it could have been that you know could have been ghost through an elaborate prank from neighbors found of fo- basement and fucking with this guy or he could be crazy and on drugs is probably the top three options. I am rule. But that's i mean that's pretty much it free. He shot at the fridge and the neighbors will know. He's crazy opening case really. At least he put the gun down in the middle of the street. He wasn't like threatening other people he thought he had dealt with business with the people. And you know i guess. He thought he got him. Ask your question. Do the same thing that i did. It's also possible that the story is completely fabricated just because it's so insane. There aren't many details but your stories are got little. Are they really are. they're not well. The jetpack is real in terms of the police after the pilots reporting and the fbi. This one i think might just be like a mean story. But it's been reported by all the local papers in washington and i went on twitter. Verified it everywhere. So if i got got sorted like fifty other news publications but no one can find this guy's name so maybe if anyone out there wants to update me on the yakama washington madman that shoots at fridges. We can do an update down the road. But that's going to do it. For hard factor we got we got a pats what stab stab nelson nelson He's sin activist really brings the community together he Brought his zippo and his brick into the portland escalation training last month.

"Gonna fuck you this weekend. Airline reps blame the weather and operational changes aka little staff. That we do have isn't what you would call topnotch. This spokesperson was like we're spirit airlines. There's not enough of us and we're spirit. Yeah yeah sorry. The line. So long. And i kept like i kind of talked about it on the patriots today. But there was the backdrop. There's always like a bad drop in attendance. So i just needed to go the backdrop but i was hungover on sunday morning. I went to the wrong side the line and it was so so long. Couldn't wasn't paying attention. I couldn't believe was continuing to go because like three quarters of the way around the entire airport so every time there was a big break because there was a double doors they have like fifty foot brakes on the line. And i thought it was just ended up getting that part of the line and some will come from the other side of the line and call me a piece of shit loser and saying you gotta keep going to the back of the line you scumbag and then i overheard a spirit lady talking to one couple like five hundred people in in deep in line and they're like where we're going to give you a full refund on this flight. You can book a flight with another airlines she goes. This is a spirit flight. This cost two hundred dollars is gonna cost triple that and i was like i should probably that i read afterwards so i'll keep going to the back of the line but luckily i was in the wrong line. I got the backdrops off. Fuck spirit airlines american air. They quick to point out that ila spirit was the biggest offender. American airlines struggling with staff to they had like a fifteen percent cancellation on their flight of five thirty monday. So little theory here probably wrong. The airlines need cash flow right there and they're just booking these fucking flights knowing damn well they're never gonna take off but they don't give the have your money than they can switch your ass to a flight that makes more sense to them and then less costly all the cost of your time and your sanity looks like marchetto spirit. They know they're not then. No one's going to go to another land. They're just going to report to you on a flight. They're gonna pack you in. They know that these aren't going to go anywhere. But now they have your cash and now they can use that cash like a ponzi scheme. Almost wouldn't that be illegal. Thick approve it. It would be. I feel like it would be. I don't know 'cause you could always claim like operational demands. You're like well i. We had to make change. Yeah yeah but. I think something shady like that's going on Six percent is is a lot of percent. Yeah yes over weekend yeah it. Wasn't that bad weather anywhere now. Yeah they were talking about orlando had some bad weather or something but some rain thirty thirty six percent is is a lot so that that one rated orlando florida. That happens three hundred sixty five days a year at random. Florida staff. The biggest bullshit that they do. Have you ever booked a round trip flight and then knock on on the first leg. They automatically cancelled a second. Like to like i was in. This is my first leg scrambled on my own. Father them booked my own one way. Went like it was like a week and a half later went to go. Take my flight back. I'm sorry it's cancelled. 'cause you didn't show up for your first leg. I'm like no no no. They do shit like that all the time they will. They will just fuck you. They want they just want. You gotta get the app of the airline using and like check in and put the like the thing in your wallet and your phone because you need to get the updates comma delta boy now except for them destroying my laptop They're pretty good but yeah careful because it looks like it's like twenty percent chance right now should i was talking spirit because the big seats are fantastic. That's that's a loophole where you could get a round trip. Spirit airline on their big seats which are super wide in the front and nice for cheaper than economy flight on any other airline. So that was. That was a hack. I found this weekend. But that's pretty cool but spirit. I guess cancels lot of flights bittersweet. You know life is life operates in shades of gray markelle. There's nuance everywhere. One man's trash another man's treasure right there there you go okay all right. That's it Let's take the last guys. A washington man took the prize of of the crazies this week in a landslide This unnamed man was arrested in yakima washington yakima washington for shooting at his refrigerator. Get i guess.

Becky's off she'll be back can we. Can we just be right. It's okay just to voice bear with us. Let's talk about some of the covert news because we're continuing to learn more about the delta variant and it is concerning some internal. Cdc documents now reportedly say the delta appears to cause more severe illness than earlier variants of the virus and spreads easily as chickenpox. The washington post reporting those documents. According to that report vaccinated individuals infected with delta be able to transmit the virus just as easily as those who are unvaccinated the report also noting higher risk of hospitalization and death among older people regardless of vaccination status. Nbc's reached out to the cdc for common. And we're going to talk a lot more about this as you might imagine. But if true raises all sorts of questions about the return to work in Other issues As we as we try to get this country back open And just as we're getting back open. Joe it feels There's parts of it. We talked about yesterday. You know disney announcing that you've got to wear a mask indoors you're not you're anecdote matches up the one you say matches up with the province town an anecdote where there is a july fourth celebration mostly vaccinated people and a lot of people are came down with it. So that the cdc saw that and they really didn't tell anyone what they're talking about and they made that move out of an abundance of caution panic whichever you want to call it. The post the post rupert murdoch. But i don't know if you've got the post today. They did some numbers though andrew and they did a little chart for and talked about one hundred. Sixty one million people vast and breakthrough at this point fifty six zero one. Five thousand six hundred and one appear little corner were breakthrough and were hospitalized breakthrough in hospitalized and then out of the one points out of one hundred sixty one million one thousand one hundred and forty one. People died at the point. Zero zero zero seven percent. You know what we're learning andrew about about the vaccines in a cdc's got a problem because you're trying to get people to take this thing and interesting doesn't work then. You have a tough sales job. Let's talk about when you take when you get the vaccine. Do you think the vaccine is a therapeutic. Do you think it attacks. Covert no it gets your immune system to to make things that attacks if you are immuno-compromised or you're over a certain age or if you've had an underlying conditions got anything that compromises your immune system. Of course the vaccine is going to be less effective. Because it's getting you to fight the virus. It's not itself so i don't you know. Have you noticed that. Gottlieb has been kind of sanguine about our ability to deal with delta. Because he hasn't been spent he's out mostly throw it though he says. We're probably very positive thinking that we might have heat. And we might be coming down joining us right now. Dr scott colleague former fda commissioner to cnbc contributor. You also serves on the boards of pfizer and aluminum dr If the war has changed what do we need to do to change. Well i think the documents that were released in washington post That were cdc documents with what we've been saying what we suspected for weeks and what we saw some of the data that was being released by israel and other countries it was being also collected by academic groups. I don't think that this really changes the truth. I think what this changes is. cdc's Willingness to acknowledge that truth so the vaccine still work very well they they Showed a twenty five. Even the cdc's data that was leaked to the washington post. They showed a twenty fold reduction in the risk of death at twenty five fold reduction in the risk of hospitalization and eightfold reduction in risk of disease. What we know what we believe in what we now know. More fully based on this information that was unfortunately not releasing it controlled fashioned from. Cdc is that vaccinate people at developing infection and vaccinated people In certain situations are transmitting the infection. And we've been talking. We've been talking about this for weeks now andrew on this show That there was probably more infection occurring among vaccinated people than was being detected The the vaccine people by and large not getting sick or when they get there just developing mild symptoms but they can't catch and spread the infection and so that that has to change. How even a vaccine individual judges their individual risk if you're vaccinated and you're around people who are vulnerable. You have very young kids. You're around older. People for the vaccines may be declining and effectiveness. You need to be careful. You need to take precautions to both prevent yourself from getting infected and prevent yourself from potentially spreading the infection if you're unknowingly infected and that means testing it means mask wearing means taking precautions. I don't think it means putting everyone who's vaccinated in masks. I think it means giving guidance to people had a slightly reduce their risk. Dr one of the big questions is as you know. So many people Getting back to work in office spaces and the like some now some post labor day at least that was the initial plan. We're seeing some companies. Push that back already. You're going to have parents that have kids that are unvaccinated..

And when we're able again let's promise to keep on traveling if you like to explore historic cities with funkier festive neighborhoods. We've got to for you to choose from in the hour ahead. Tour guides from Portugal will help us navigate the street life and the tangle of cobbled lanes and lookouts and their capital as we get acquainted with the neighborhoods of Lisbon and an architecture critic finds a lot to like faded charisma of Buenos Aires. But I writer Wendy. Simmons returns to travel with Rick. Steves to help us look forward to our next long airplane flight in coach as a photographer and contributor to Huffington Post. Wendy's traveled a lot so far she's been to eighty five countries. She doesn't read the overseas flights at all in fact she joins us now with her tips on enjoying your next flight. Wendy thanks for being here. Sorry my so you write that long haul. Flights can be more fun than short ones. That's pretty good trick house. Oh I travel all the time as you said and I've come to really not lake. Short flights feel long only. They're not so I can't get anything done and instead you know. I look at long haul flights as uninterrupted me. Time just ten twelve hours of time where? I don't have any guilt that I should be doing something else and instead I can use the time to do all the things I wanna do that. I never seem to have time for one on the so that takes a little bit of intention and thinking ahead. I do the same thing when I'm planning a trip to Europe and I know my departures a week out. I've actually got a little list of things I'm going to do during the flight because I will get hours of me time. What are some of your meantime activities that make that flight actually blessing? Well it can be fun stuff and it can also be stuff that I just have to get taken care of that. I never have time to do so. For example it's a great time. I listened to a lot of music. I love music and I am always frustrated. That can't find the song I feel like listening to her playlist and that type of thing so it's a great time to clean out my tunes library and get rid of music. I don't like or create playlists. It's a great time to go through my email inbox and just finally cleared out. You don't have to be online to do that. Those things take a long time in our lives are so busy and never get render so tedious and who wants to do that on weekends. You know for me. A related thing would be Hall the piles of photos. I've got packed into my iphone. You can just go through in down. It's actually it's the perfect time to do all the stuff you don't WanNa waste time doing during the weekend or at night. Also you can just do something that you would normally invest time in other ways. Absolutely you know I'll to things like if I've always wanted to read about the history of someplace or I've been wanting to learn a few key phrases in the language of whatever country I'm going to you know that's the perfect time to catch up on movies or season of television shows all season of whatever or watch a movie that you wouldn't have exactly those are the exactly the kind of thing so it's really about mindset or a movie that your partner wouldn't WanNa see with you exactly are the ones you'd be so embarrassed ask anyone to watch with you. If you're anywhere else I love to walk up and down the aisle and just look at the way. People are spending their time and see how they're really getting into all that trash on the screen.

It's just exhausting to me and I can have my own little cone of silence and when I put my headphones on nobody talks to me and I do have that meantime I remember this interview that the CEO of Spirit Airlines did one time after a poll came out ranking them dead last in customer service and seat size and space and all these other statistics and he basically said listen. We get you from place to place really cheap. You can spend the money where you're going and I thought you know what a brilliant response and that's how I look at it. The airplane isn't part of the vacation. It's to get me to the big Russian affordably. Say money to it up and uncomfortable for thirteen hours so I have an extra thousand dollars when I get wherever it is that I'm
