"You can also do an exchange from a life insurance contract into an annuity contract. And there are a couple of different couple of different permutations of the go of going between life and long-term care nudity, etc. But ten thirty five exchanges could be very useful. Because as those values grow in annuity you can exchange them from one annuity to another annuity. If there's an annuity that better fits your circumstances. And better fits your situations. You should know that. However, if you don't keep it in. Annuity and if you surrendered nudie before fifty nine and a half you will pay ordinary income taxes on the gain. Plus if it's before fifty nine and a half a ten percent penalty tax if it's atrophied into nine and a half, you'll just pay ordinary income taxes and those taxes are assessed. If it's a lump sum they'll be assessed as a lump sum if receiving a series of new witty payments, you'll pay taxes based upon an exclusion ratio, which represents the amount of the annuity contract that was your contribution versus in amount that was your taxable profit. Notice the words that I said a moment ago in a slum stream of tax words, which was ordinary income one of the disadvantages of purchasing annuities is the growth on an annuity is ordinary income, which is usually the highest taxed category for most people. This means that although you could purchase variable sub accounts that have investments in them. That's useful. But what you don't get is. You don't get the treatment of those account as long term capital gains, which are usu-. Really at least in the current US tax code a lower tax rate. And so you need to do attacks analysis when purchasing an annuity as well. That covers basically taking money putting it into a new ity for the purpose of protecting that money. It is a valuable useful strategy. It's also not quite as simple as some of the other strategies we have discussed, but it is a valuable useful strategy. You can take money that is exposed to the claims of creditors because you are holding it in just open investment accounts and open Bank accounts, and you can purchase an annuity the suited to your investment objectives. And then annuity value can be protected from the claims of your creditors..

"You know, the problem sky jets or Philip in our lions and that said, so the do these the act as if you're in Hong Kong, and Singapore, and the Tel you all in you're like, yeah. Well, we're sitting in front of the runway and there's nothing else to do. We can see everything you're asking us. It's endearing I love it. When you lend their the end deliver you the luggage. You clearly see them picking up the luggage from the and the have a seemingly belt, but the belt doesn't move just drop the luggage. And you pick it and you leave. That's it takes you like a second. Honestly, it's really cute. I love I don't get to go to enough airports like that one or two shops in it. But when I was leaving arrive in the airport, and then because of the tracker is I can see that the flight I'm supposed to take as not even left Manila. So it's never going to take off in half an hour. I would go out again. And there's like these guys have installed little restaurants, just because there's people around maybe they have business, and I went to a restaurant and had some food Filipina food amazing next door. There's a bar. They have like maybe just five years. That's it. And it's like you'll sheds next week other next to the airport. The best thing essential picture because I don't have anything to do walking around walking around. This is real tiny airport. I see that I can see the runway better from an angle so ago there with McKenna, and then C H eighteen right there, so beautiful and delivery of this put pick on the in our Instagram account. It's just sitting there and these things if stops doing them in the sixties or something, and it's in pristine condition of sensitive pick. It's my God that was super happy to see one there and waiting. Beautiful. Yeah. Anyway, it's much more to add to that airport. It's one of the you'd be using if you were to go there slots of those in the Philippines, vertical magnificent beaches. Obviously, the best thing is when you take off when you land yet, the views stunning views on the islands on the tolls and very very low UC everything. Yeah. Just guys just for that go to an upper night that I I'm going to make that my plan for twenty nine hundred 'cause I love airports like that. You would love it. You would actually adore it. So what are your next lights out a couple of weeks? I am going to Mexico City. Oh my God. Yeah. How on aero Mexico, which will be I yeah. It's pricing difficult to get to Mexico City, especially through the US. You would think that would be there would be alien flight today me to the US majors. Don't fly nearly as often as I thought they would so. Era. Mexico flight times are are really convenient. They are both late night departures from Heathrow and from Mexico City, which means we maximize our time on the ground there. So I have no idea what to expect. I'm in their economy product, I will report back because I which alliance are they with their one of the founding members of Skyping. Okay. So I have no status whatsoever. Very interesting. So that your first flight into nineteen. We'll be exactly what people tell us to do. Sometimes like in two more regular flights in our. Yep. Point ta than perfect. Wow. I'm very jealous in Mexico City apparent he's amazing especially for food. Yes. I'm looking forward to eating myself. Silly. Actually, we might record before you leave. We don't know. We'll see if we can actually make it to compensate for lack of episodes. I'm Frank two more morning be a two birth Alana for birthday and back. So T three I might go to these American lounge, and then probably at the time when you're flying to Mexico, but probably would record before I'm doing this crazy thing when I'm in San Francisco Sunnyvale, actually so Sunday would be better to fly to Sacco save with. But I need to be the week. Just really just after any to be in Dubai, and it was looking the press like crazy because Sandra rule, whatever. So then what I ended up doing is flying with them rats to do by switch terminal and Dubai and then from two pie with Pacific to Hong Kong, Hong Kong to San Francisco, Dr Sunnyvale and the way back I redo the whole thing..

"But if you do what do you do do you look around your shoulder? Honestly, I don't know what you do friends where the wedding when they were on the way out on their boarding pass this little thing. Just all you this morning was actually taped on their boarding pass relied yet, probably if you were flying if you're an American citizen, you would get that on your boarding pass as little sticker on up say, oh, we do not meet the security requirement. Please increase cautioned with she like. So what do that now? Dr. Yeah. That is that is bizarre. And then so I stayed. Went back to Manila airport design motif four, which is the domestic terminal, which is a shed which you cannot connect from all therefore terminals one two three four. They're not linked to each other. So you need to get out and take a cab, which is why I built sometimes in Manila arrived the night before and food the morning after because I knew this impossible to not realize the city was could have made it all the was in normal settings possible which thank God actually allowed me to find clothes for the wedding. Finally, just last-second because that's summer and to arrive at t for still shed last time, I flew there. It was ten years ago. And it hasn't changed, and it's a disaster. But it's funny. It's almost endearing. How much is a disaster. They have like it's five gates. Basically, imagine, Alex. It's the size of the room you're in now. And if I get the next week others, you're like, what do you even have numbered gates? Out and you walk walked to the to the aircraft. The also exactly they don't make sense. Also have a sequence number is on the burning passes. So on those for some reason in the way, they are at sequence number two and on the way back at sequence number seven only that when they actually do now say sequence one to ten please come now. What would you have sequenced number if everybody basically boards at the same time? It's just that doesn't make any Wilton to the system, and it will be more effort to undo it than to say. This is how we do it. So I was flying said go, which is an off shoot or a license. I'm not sure of Sibu Pacific eighty are seventy-two Pertile plane had from role. It's the same price just was looking at. It was I knew that these flights are very busy over the holidays them month month ago, and so really cool super noisy. A handful not are forever. I've you time I flew one was maybe five years ago from crackle. Maybe. Oh, yeah. I remember. Yeah. These you have some lose your right, actually. So I'm too as is great it's endearing because the so I didn't realize by the way when I bought the ticket about a ticket that included some foods the sandwich. I was the only person with a frigging sandwich indirect crop. I mean, it was okay. I mean, I tried it. It was pretty good as chicken sandwich and the crew is super young and they have to bit like probably Ryanair, but I can better way they have to run competitions the Scheldt into the said who can show us something yellow the color of the airline is yellow and the first person that actually shows something yellow by raising his or her hand gets a prize. And then who can show us. According pass the first person that shows a boarding pass surprise, and then who can show, and I can see she has dates cellphone charger and bags. I don't know what the prices were because they didn't really participate in the game. It's super endearing right and stuff like that. It's an hour flight, and it's fun and it's super noisy. I realized by the way because I out of probably because I knew the brand Pacific. There's another L ankle sky jets, and that would have been for you because they have ever liners. They do have one of them actually used to belong to be because I went on air. Why fleet? And the thing is I had friends of mine Mark and Cecilia there were two same shed t four waiting for their flight. Their flight was leaving twenty minutes after mine, but because they had a jet engines in an AT are which is propeller the arrived, ten minutes before me. So they were like they were waiting the little boats that took us to the island..

"It's very anyway. What I also realized because now they've opened midfield concourse in. If you've seen that because I'm OCD look at details. The signs of slightly changed because before the opening of the midfield concourse if you were between gates thirty three to eighty you're basically, we'll tell you go to the people mover instead of walking now for the gates thirty three to forty basically tells you to walk. They've changed a little bit design they have, and I don't know what the status of Hong Kong airport was when you were there vis-a-vis the food court situation, but you almost had to go down to that. And any way to eat the rest of it was just so thrashed was it. Yeah. I'm guessing that you that when you when you come no outbound immigration, it wasn't a construction site. No is okay. Actually. So maybe they've done it. Then I need to go back and look or maybe knowing that his very busy period, they stopped work for a little bit. I don't know. Because again, it was like I was literally their January second item. Yeah. Yeah. It didn't the rest like I think you said that you actually said that when you talked about hunkering, it's true that you were right? The rest of ongoing construction site everywhere. Yeah. It's crazy. It's absolutely absolutely crazy. Yeah. It's actually funny because again, most of the and I love reading stuff on Wiki pedia. So getting into these rabid hall after looking at this scientists, and actually they are gates do not exist, then realized that actually for instance, gate five to eight do not exist. Because now they've been renumbered five hundred five hundred is the day have another congress, you know, the small thing north one where Hong Kong express, and you have to take a bus to. Yes. I think anyway, it's just funny that some gates that are, of course, it's just you. I don't want you to get lost. The better have round numbers between like a forty eight hundred forty one in. And so they are actually do not exist because it was walking. Whereas. Five doesn't exist. Whereas gate nine gate nine nine favorite number doesn't exist. Either. Gate, seventy to eighty nine exist. They did that simply didn't want to say get one to seventy two. They wanted to have a scientist says get one to eighty so they just went for it. But they do not exist. Actually, it's really funny. You can look it up on the maps. There's a lot of kids that don't exist. It's just it's just fun too much time on my hands. And I was looking for them. It was like, oh, wow. So then Manila I landed Manila. So that was with triple seven, but that's the other. That's a city with Kathy dragon. I think yes, which I- raved about actually that was a cafe and Ryan cafe. Either way. I mean, basically back then it was the same thing as short haul business classy, really, really good. That was really good. It's to to. But for like a flight that takes less than two hours. It's amazing and food and was fantastic fee. Was actually it was better probably because his newer than the triple seven hundred seventy is a bit slow to react to feel a few years old. I was pressing the thing and actually react. But it's not fantastic. Again, arrive at the minute, very, we covered minute are very lucky this literally no-one immigration, which never happens. I go out from plane to curb in seven minutes, if you guys I've ever been to many others impossible. That's and then realize that the middle of the holidays Manila was empty. I've never seen city even when I was living there because of course, I would come to Europe to see my parents who had never saw it like that. It was mazing felt like a London over the holidays. No one. I mean, it's amazing really amazing. The one thing though. Arrive in the United States. Just warranted citizens. I'm not one. But I read that because it was there. Anyway, that security at Manila airport does not meet international standards, the urge travelers to exercise increased caution. I loved a little bit because. Yes, they right. I think the when they're need an assessment, but they only realize that now. Means that that it degraded even more. But also, what is what does more than what is that? What are you know, what that?.

Every time we talked about that AmEx. Very good monitoring that for you.

The car to be cancelled. And they sent me one. I think within forty eight hour it arrived within forty eight hours. And actually, I had noticed an increase in posts on fly talking to British Airways form about about these. And of course, the politics just jump in and said, it was nothing to do with the hack, but it's still come on. And flabbergasted me that nothing has been done about this. I've spent almost a full day's worth of hours on this on this hack since it happened. And there's been other than the the free credit monitoring that there's nothing not even an apology that wasn't clearly PR apology. That's we had actually a lot of messages from of course, listeners as we do as you might have understood we're not going to cover news for two reasons. First because of time we have a hard stop during our recording day today, we were able to manage episodes of at this great. And the second one is because literally prepared this show with Alex thirty minutes before we start at half time together all your messages, but we had I remember quite a lot of messages at a people talking about and how the acted with them on that hack. And all these appointed there were so, yeah, it's it's I don't know disappointing. It is very disappointing. And then very frustrating as well. Are you still thinking of moving your miles loyalty to for instance, AA or I I still? still. Enough about miles to to to know what relations I need to make into and also I like be a short haul. I really do. I think I think those crews are so so good, and I would still fly them. Of course, I'll still fly them. I have to, but it would feel there's there's something that would make me feel sad about about not being ABA gold customer and being an American whatever the equivalences, I was interviewing for something else. And I met the founder, I direct, you know, the. Very famous Bank here in the UK guys. And the guy is a serial trip preneurs and amazing things and he was telling the story of how be twenty years ago. And I don't know the story in front of me, I'll repeat that another episode hot hired, and that's how they transform themselves.

"There. And it's been three weeks December fourteenth. I was looking today December fourteenth they had an engine issue was going from Dubai to Oslo landed. Now it stuck because if the part, I don't know how to solve that one. Yeah. Exactly. What do you? What do you? How do you get around that? I have no idea maybe somebody has to get the blueprints from buoying manufacturing, China and something that I have no idea what's going to. Maybe they'll do have an exception. I have no idea not fun for Norwegian though. I'm sure when you got a brand new plane to sitting there not making money. And I've seen talking about Boeing so they've been looking into the our craft. We're gonna fly into thirty to forty years and they've just released a new wing design the transoceanic trust braced wing. I've seen the picture. I have seen it almost looks like the Cessna style. Or you've got the Streit's coming from the wing into the fuse lodge and then atop the wing across the top of the fuse lodge. It's it's bizarre. And it says that it allows to have much lighter wings ultra thin because of these choices that are basically supporting the wing like Longo wings as well will allow to go at further speeds, max speeds as well and increase the cruise the altitude by critic, the thinners can go faster and fascinating. They do. They actually work with NASA to build that's probably one day. We'll have one of these things. It's really fascinating. I find. Yeah. And I I I like. That they continue to innovate. And maybe we won't see it in this coronation, but we'll see the technology that came out of the thought process and the design process that that's that's what got us to composites for most of the airliners that are made today that type of process looking twenty to thirty years into the future another duddy just re sexually. So it's now the future is the BB triple seven x. So of course, it's based on a triple seven business jets. It's not for your meal, the layovers could try to buy one for our own use the interesting thing about that one is that it can connect every city in the world. It's the aircraft that flies to further think thinking has a range of twenty thousand kilometers, which is insane. That is insane back to the problem that we keep talking about which is the hell wants to fly for that long. Well, only see ios in various people because these are craft doesn't solve the problem. Qantas wants to solve with London. To CDN back because obviously it's much lighter. Because you don't have the cargo, and you don't have four hundred passengers it if if you were to had that on that design while he won't work, exactly. Since was reading that news was wondering, what are the current longest lights in the world to start twenty nine thousand nine probably because I'm seeing some of our listeners are trying to do these once I'm not sure like Alex just mentioned that we want to sit in this for long. So the longest is Singapore Nurik, which just restarted eighteen hours, thirty minutes for almost thousand miles with three fifty. You are the second one is Qatar Oakland to Doha it's nine thousand miles for seventeen hours and fifty minutes in a triple seven to one hundred long range, the third one is birth London. I think at Parsons did it also around nine thousand miles from seventeen hours and twenty five minutes in a Dreamliner dash nine the fourth is to to Auckland three eighteen for seventeen hours and ten minutes a bit less than nine thousand miles the fifth. One is Singapore. Airlines Singapore to LA eight thousand..

"One thousand nine hundred with both said that these are craft will be very popular jet blue taking some options at the very least. So it's proving to be after nearly dying on the drawing board crazy v very popular. Yeah. And moxie that still the temporary name. I guess that newer line biter founder of jet. Blue a sign of firm order designed to buy sixty of them the three hundred of the large version, so yeah, it's going to be very popular, and you guys into US into able to see it because right now you have to fly Swiss Baltic to see them. So it's going to be all over we keep saying that this aircraft will be a smash it for Airbus. It's it's really cool. And the one thing that was really cool. So I think I said a few epizootic when you fly Swiss on the body to or from Geneva, not Zurich the trying this new thing that instead of serving you food they have like a bit like be they have a menu you can buy a sandwich. And if you're in business last busy get it for free. What I try last time was plan. So busy secure meets right? And the cool thing is the actually give you a wouldn't plaza. At wouldn't plant has embossed engraved a picture of a two twenty. That's so cool. And you can keep it, obviously, that's really really cool, by the way. The also offer an SO someone taking it a phone do much much, which is half Vashon and have glare. I could see the guy trying to eat the films you out of this things. It's possible to phone unis in the Swiss flight, which actually make sense. It's kickoff Boeing aircraft. Boeing won the race sales over arabists into eighteen in aircraft value by a lot. Apparently in sales is very close. Rbis was bit late disclosing it sales arabists was able to add a few of these twenty s the very end. So the actually almost have the same number of sales. But clearly Boeing is winning that race that doesn't mean a lot. But. I mean, especially with the consolidation. That's happening. Bombarded sensually getting out of the air airline market and with the ember and Boeing Javy think. Now a done deal too. Is the tours racist sensually, no disrespect to to to have the not our? But for the for the jets anyway, and I don't, you know? They'll still both do really, well, even if one quote unquote, beats the other the third one might be over the years, the komax nine one nine I think it's called the third one just its maiden flight tests light. So they're going to set a lot of those in China. I'm sure probably actually abrode when you fly especially Asia when you fly to I was into Philippines. I'm pretty sure deuce guys would actually buy them. I think initially Europe in the US will be a bit like, no, no. And then they will end up buying them like in twenty thirty years. But at the beginning, I think in Asia, you will see those a lot. Yeah. I think you're right. I think you're I think they'll get some decent discounts for for Chinese airlines talking about the Boeing seven thirty-seven max was the smash it for Boeing in terms of sales. I've seen that story of the one from Norwegian error daddy stranded in Iran. Yeah. It had to divert to Sharad which is somewhere. I've always wanted to go. And they can't get the part into the country. They need to fix it. Because of the of the embargoes following being a US company. And then these reasonably new embargoes means it's basically stuck.

"But he was really over this quiet various suring voice explaining what was happening. So I think that that's great. But at the end of the day traffic tell you freaked out. The. There's no way you can go. Yeah. So I was lucky to have my my backpack with me because I changed t shirts and everything so five minutes later at the end of it. I was fine. And it was not spill with coffee anymore. But really it was the area the coincidence. She gave me because she you're the services so good a Catholic that she really wanted to give me that coffee because because like maybe fifteen minutes before was a worst fricking timing possible. What I'm going to do with his coffee was looking like a storage that can spill the coffee into no nothing anyway. Oh, well, we'll cover a guys list bun in a forthcoming show because we was there was a month ago now time flies. But it seems like we said in a previous episode all these are mingling and minds and you've been there. So it's a it's an interesting airport to cover so we'll do that. So I'm not going to ask about these one. But is there anything remarkable a non remarkable about these for? I think the only thing those who flown to Lisbon with able this is that you almost always have a remote stand. Is a little frustrating. But. I think there's been airport is reasonably at its capacity. Yeah. You just give me the perfect leading for the next set of news, which is still about the UK. Sorry guys do not live here. But very interesting still is that I think the reason we have a remote Senate Lisburn in many other airports is because not being part of Schengen. They have to take us to different routing to go into and we're still not either a big bird coming from the US or from Asia. So that's why we're very very often unlucky, including in Germany and other places, and we get these because airports within the Schengen area. Bill for eighty percent shangen people and any are like outliers and they have to bring a somewhere. Wanna think about what's going to happen? Months? That's yeah. That's like what three months it's coming very quickly. So I I g because you share that piece of news with me yesterday. So they had done all these setups to make sure that they will still get the open skies agreements that applies within the EU to being able to fly within the EU Eber. Apparently, it's might not be working at all because they make a differentiation between the actual people will hold a parasite beside. Because maybe some of you know, in order to be considered a e u base company your shareholder setup has to be fifty. Plus one percent ebays. Of course, when the UK gets out suddenly that shareholder balance changes. So they were trying to to maintain the shareholder by doing a lot of various financial shady things to hide who was whatever. And the had basically attained it only that a body into European until. Them. Well, but the actual power so Wu's actually making the finish decision. That is still mostly in the end of non EU when chaos Brexit, thus we won't be able to be considered as you. Skirt. We we both said cheekily yesterday with that news came up. We both said that I almost want it to happen as I know. I know some people will play me from saying that on the show, and please do, but I was wanted to happen. Because you know, what let's go with it. Let's run with the ball to actually see what actually happens, right? Yeah. I think that will it will increase the pressure from business on the government to actually to sort this out. So but the ship may have sailed or not actually because none of the ports are going to be ready..

"Was it violent as you know? But since we're talking about this on my way back from so flu, Manila, Hong Kong, Hong Kong e throw just today's ago and from Hong Kong to throw viciously when you reach too high terrains of China this always shaky there's no way to avoid it. And they knew that in the captain came on the very beginning of the fights that we're gonna try to void it. But it might be some shakiness we see in it. I didn't do what you had done. So in actually screen shot, even the actor Dwyfor is awesome. But didn't go there didn't actually check. And I could see the moving map that were avoiding the terrain. We're on the Nord of Chen just below the Gobi desert Mongolia, if you actually going to map guys rights west of Beijing and Sony started to do exactly you mentioned all the at that point in the flight. Although it was a day flight all the windows were shades were closed because some people were. Sleeping and he started moving like insane for little just like three minutes. I said, okay. Whatever the crew hadn't been asked to seat at that point. And I remember I had asked like ten minutes before for coffee, and she comes to mean says, oh here, here's a coffee. She gives me the coffee in exact movement. She gives a coffee it starts again. Spilling the coffee everywhere. Obviously. It's okay. Just coffee, whatever it went. I cannot compare. I don't know if it was as violent pitied went for twenty minutes, super hard. Look the crew was asked to sit down for twenty twenty five minutes. It was moving and I was trying to drink the coffee to avoid because they know where to put it, right? I I don't know if actually is better. But I tend to what that got two things happen to hold the drink in my hand to compensate for the movement. Built in begin. But I I mean, I did my best. I the one time to take a sip, obviously, massive one and get some my face. I'm like my God. Anyway, no biggie. But and I could see the behavior mentioned not from a crew I could see many people opening the window shade taking a look outside which was bright and sunny, nothing, you know, because you cannot see it. We're not in a storm anything, and I could see the end of the twenty five minutes in the story short some passengers really shaken up like really like, and we had like steely, no probably nine hours to go. It's not it's not reassuring. If you're freaked out at that point. It's really not reassuring. It was my biggest strongest turbulence in five to six years. Yeah. It was really really really really big. I mean, I was like, you know, because I'm like you. I used not to be maybe as fearful flying as you. But these kind of things used to disturb me a lot when I was younger, and I would get like the what's going on what's going on. Now. I was like what the hell I'm gonna I'm gonna do. Right. So I was smiling and trying to watch my movie with shaking like my very quiet movie became became a documentary shaky camera. That region of China's always bad you've got a mountain. I can't wear. What are they called the mountain rolls or something that the air coming down off the mountains? I remember can't they pilot. I sat next to him on a flight from Joe Burg to Hong Kong, and we were talking about about turbulence because they'd had to do a lot of vase of maneuvering around thunderstorms, and he said when they track over the plateau of Tibet, you're going just north of it skirting around the side of it. He said it often felt at least in the flight deck like somebody had grabbed the tail and which is lifting it up and then dropping it down. It wasn't it wasn't violent. But it was disconcerting. And he said, yeah that region is is if it's not that it's it's jet streams. So this it is what it is. It is what it is and qudos because like you the pilot came many times on the PA to reassure passengers to tell me was a kid. There was nothing. We could do that try their best to avoid again moving back up. So that they were going eastwards where they will usually go that route probably voting worse turbulences. But there was simply nothing you can do..

"Already had big register breath fresh show was higher but over. This is great for the L of all ready a lot of Jones were bored. Pre-release? Yeah. They're just about to mention that any psych everything if I buy a drone, let's say in Hong Kong where I was just last week. And I come back. I mean who's gonna tell me to register? I mean, it's a self. I need to be honest and do it but didn't buy it in shop in the U K. So I don't know. I also if you're building one from scratch, which a lot of people have the ability to do then it just it doesn't make any difference. What is for sure is that the incidents involving drones as increased and some were real ones, actually, they were like think month and a half ago that was the closest ever encounter? There was a Virgin Atlantic came ten feet into crushing drone that was over a classroom. So very close to where live one of the most used lending pathways to throw ya think? He also used to live there. Did they say in twenty thirteen obviously there was no drums back then there were zero incidents and compared to more than one hundred twenty eighteen I mean, again, all those under it's actually all real sightings. But like you say, what is disturbing is that how do you make sure there's actually a drill Bill? They use radar technology. I mean, they're buying military. Great source of probably they will be better ability for airports to sure there's no drones. But it was one of these. I think we've talked about it when it happened that I would have never guessed that something that would happen shutting down an airport by just you know, touting someone withdrawn not even mentioning the word no non to start with. But even if you had one being able to fly it for like, ten minutes shutting down the airport, then disappearing flying again, and disappearing and disappearing. That's actually a very effective with shutting down airports cost. I don't. Yeah. I think it's my my fear is that even if it didn't exist, and it was just a figment of a lot of hysteria. There are people out there who would have gone. You know, what that's that's a pretty amazing power move that you can do that would be equivalent of the zoning for all kidding. Well. Joke. But it's a pretty as we we all when when when get wick was shut down. We all assumed that on all of us. I assume that it was going to be an environmental protest. Yeah. Me too. And we still don't know if that was the case or not. But if it hasn't happened as a result, it will in the future can almost guarantee it gives a come to some news about throw a few minutes. But it gives some idea sues don't want extra Fleiss. Don't want extra noise. We don't want extra pollution over the air over London, or Birmingham, or Manchester, whatever and the sad thing. Because actually, I witnessed one of those guys to set thing is because it was over a very very very busy period means that they were no ability for airlines. It was not a fault to revoke because all their flights were fully was Christmas new years. If period of this guy next to me that was talking to the ticketing and remember where the twentieth of December. And the lady tells them well over here, the lady tells it well the next flight available. For us at twenty nine th of December. Because you know, there's no room all the flights are full of this year. So the poor deport dude was. Yeah. Exactly what it's crazy. She. Yeah. I've looked up with other countries are Don just out of curiosity in South Korea and France, use a shoulder mounted guns that fire nets than again, you still have to find the drill in the first place the US and China US anti-drug lasers that incapacitates the drone. And the best one is the Netherlands. They use eagles..

"That was insane. It was the most bizarre story in our world for a long long time. And we still haven't heard the end of this story. It's I can't get over it. I can't get over. How crazy this was that this quote unquote drone? I say that for a reason shutdown the second busiest single airport in the world for over a day. I think thirty six hours. Yeah. One hundred fifty thousand people maybe even more than that we're stranded or or or their flights were cancelled or. Hey, there camping out in airports. The military was brought in the public transport infrastructure collapsed. It was it was unbelievable day on the day that because it was a Friday twentieth on the day that one of the busiest day ever because Christmas felon, you know, that that would be the start of the week for people getting the holiday so it was like literally the the airports were rammed, and nobody was laying up. It was crazy. It was unprecedented. And they initially wanted to shoot this thing down, and that would be unsafe because you never know where the the bullet Ed or the bullet going to land, and then they opened up the airport in stupid thing came back. This all happened at night. I believe I don't think there was any occurrence where this drone was spotted during the day. This thing, isn't it? I mean, we don't know don't have the full extent of the story, but it's drone sightings to somebody will say there's a drone probably official. Saying somebody a passenger. And then, of course, deregulation of all the airports in the UK, you shut down the thirty minutes to make sure that whatever citing he's gone. And then as soon as thirty minutes window would close the be another sighting was it a public hysteria. Was it actually Jones sightings then because they were repeated. Okay, rinses decided to basically close the airport for three hours, six hours and twelve hours in forever. Yeah. Crazy. Yeah. And I it got stranger and stranger Inchon's. They the airlines were were really suffering because there's there's there's nothing that they could do there were flights being diverted that we're in bound from overseas. A lot of flights were cancelled all over the world. So you had passenger stock cruised out of hours stuck and the Sussex police whose jurisdiction Gatwick falls into more criticized for how they handled it. But then there was that bizarre statement by I think, it was somebody from Sussex or was it. Somebody from the government that said there may have not actually been in drone after all exactly. So what is it? I mean was there a drone? There was never actually a picture or confirmed evidence. Whether well that's one blurry video that circulated. But you're not even sure it was filmed over Gatwick you. I mean, there's no this ity the police probably knows better than us. But that's why I was talking to public hysteria is like everybody says, oh, there's a terrorist in oh, there's a terrorist and everybody says that and certainly people start running and people started panicking was it that or was it actually one. I don't know this even the Sussex police also said some of the dream spotted at Gatwick airport to have been police drones looking for other drones. I just I'm I'm speechless. I really am. Because I think this is a dangerous precedent. And actually, we confirmed precedent because and we'll come onto that later. I'm sure that a not even actually real drone can bring an airport to it's knees for thirty six hours is disturbing to say, the least and there were all of these conspiracy theories floating around that that the drone operator the most likely place was for them to be inside of the airport with access to areas that the public would have because that would give them the range that they needed that. It was a coordinated effort because the battery life is only thirty minutes and at needed to be a custom built one because off-the-shelf drones couldn't. Yeah. At least of this fro- one and not something you could buy it was one not a phantom for whatever was stuff that is used for arial photography or professional uses like ARCHE. Sure. But I mean, they all say that. But we haven't actually had any news from this. We don't need. No, then as we are want to do in this country. Sadly, these this poor couple our aviation and drone enthusiasts nearby were arrested on suspicion of being the perpetrators and then released without charge and exonerated..

"Gag xactly Swiss off Choi getting compensation I'm still trying. They denied me my first request grounds. Unexpected flight safety shortcoming. That's that's all year. But because you know, if you live in the EU, or if you have a flood gumming or flying from the EU compensation kicks in and the rules have been tightened now that they've been some court rulings. If it's a technical fault. It's not an extraordinary circumstance. So the airline owes you money, but they didn't say technical this unexpected flight safety shortcoming, thus we. Come on. I'm sure they have a dedicated team finding special wording to avoid being exactly the wording that would kick in compensation. I don't want as you. I honestly I the ticket was expensive. So I'm like, whatever for the principal. I'm going to reply. I'm going to say guys, what is this worrying that doesn't mean anything at least make it commercial Cheshire, if they were to offer even five thousand miles per she's worth nothing for them would sail. Whatever okay fine. Because obviously, I get the money is almost nothing. But I mean, come on. I'm not going to let them be no way. That's ridiculous. Very interesting thing is that very smart that shows is very good on the technology is as soon as I was rebuked by the guy ticketing automatically without doing anything. I started getting litigations from within the lift on the app on my phone. So that's really well done because they didn't have to add booking. Whatever would get the, you know, the gate number. The message your plane is ready to board and stuff like that. It's really how it should be. That's how should be the last last one forgot to mention to show. How Frankfurt is crazy? So when we ended up finally being that bus there was this shenanigan. I dunno. The driver was I don't know what someone who has not been on strike in was he touted by others. But we start running with the bus and suddenly the guy pulsa breaks middle finger someone that was outside of I can see we was middle fingering. What's going on, then etc? Rates does a three sixty. With the bus. I'm not kidding. You does like e exit through sixty still middle finger in that guy. I don't I was into center of that circle. He was doing and then continued to our craft was guar is going on here. That's weird all the passengers can each other. What is going on here? We're not going to make them angrier by telling him anything. But. Jeez. Weird. Oh, well, yeah. To some of the experience at Frankfurt the lady at a desk was boarding us. So scanning our boarding passes. She was clearly Greek and she looked at me and said in Greek that airport, she knows she knows that air force. Oh well flight back with with Swiss this time was not canceled. But I'm in the Senator lounge Geneva waiting to fly back for my last. This one was last leg of my last trip going home for Christmas and suddenly delays delays. And I'm like what's going on? And you send me the message. Well, they are drones harangue Gatwick..

"Of course, that's always the way that wasn't a. Comfort solutions because you released what nine or ten pieces of Atache lasts. Yeah. It was it was a lot. And we've got a lot more in the can as well. It's unusual situation where we have so much backlog footage that it's getting difficult to manage. But they we are. It's a nice problem to have I suppose. Well, nice problem for me. Not so not so nice for Greg. He didn't have any holidays. He's just editing yourself, right constantly. The first few ones were amazing. And I know I'm not going to reveal them Oviously. But I know the ones that are coming up including one set are coming up in an filmed yet and the all Luke amazing. So I'm hoping you're gonna steal do nine or ten this year. Because I think it's a nice schedule not to like twenty because that would be insane. But nine is is. Yeah, we'll definitely be that many this or release that many this year for sure. Then he's going to release fifty five and just never gonna. Don't complain. You love it. Okay. So let's start with that particular Karaj ical order. I arrive at e throw I think it was let me check the twentieth of December nineteen th of December. So the nineteenth of December. I was going for a meeting to meet I add a Geneva. So that's the irony because it was reading the industry Geneva and I arrive at seven AM at e throaty too. And soon as I stepped out of the car again, the -cation for mode of these obscure apps at ever use your flight is canceled. And I'm like, no, no, no, no, no. No, no. So I step into the terminal and then get information from trip. It your flight didn't cancel peace girl year line. I immediately take a look at the board. And lucky me adot point, I am because I just in front of ticketing side jump into ticketing. I'm like, there's no way I need to be attending that meeting. It starts three hours later. And. Yeah. While the flight was canceled the earlier flight, I learn west cancelled. As well. So there's sick. Yeah. I don't tell me the explanation. The guy at the ticketing. Kenneth says, you know, it's a technical problem, which means everything in. Anyway, I'm with my Google flights website and say, okay. This is the next one I can take danza, and there's no seats. He's looks looks. Looks funds me ended the finding me flight via of Frankfurt. My goodness sakes. Our new to avoid. I decided that I love that we spent so long on the last episode talking about what a crap hole it is. And then the universe decides that you need to experience at one last time for good measure since the previous flights have been cancelled. They were already a lot of people read books that it was very very few seats, and we're talking like just you know, the Thursday so on the Friday, basically people starting flying for their holidays. So obviously all the flights are full and very lucky because probably I was Senator was prioritized to get a seat. But that was not the end of it. Because of course, then my flight leaves like three hours later some relief from a meaning when I'm like, okay, I'm going to go via Frankfurt derive in Frankfurt. We're late were delayed by thirty minutes. My layover should have been fifty minutes. I'm already like the way you know, with Frankfurt in twenty minutes. I run I elbow people out of the bus because of was a bus. I run I run I run I bass, shangen, etc. Etc. And then obviously what hap-. Is that a soon as arrive in front of the gate this?
