Kiwi R ,

Great Podcast that I really appreciate

I would like to thank you for producing this podcast. Some of these unfortunate accidents and crashes I have read and researched before, however there are many that I was unaware of. I have been following air crashes since I was about 9 years old. I am an anxious person/flier! Like you I am extremely interested in finding out how these crashes implemented increased safety measures and changes.
I would like to recommend a podcast on USAir flight 405 that crashed on takeoff from LaGuardia in March of 1992. I do know it was a catalyst for improving better deicing procedures for aircraft. When I was 9 years old my parents were going through a divorce and my counselor was killed in this crash flying home to Cleveland after a weekend visiting NYC. I hope to find out more details of crash and how it helped make air travel safer for everyone, especially in snowy and icing conditions . Thank you for your time and I am extremely appreciative for your podcast! Thank You!!
In addition I just listened to your last podcast on Qantas Flight 72. Your interview with the pilot Kevin Sullivan was incredible! I have to say though that these issues with Boeing is extremely disturbing. I also will be a new supporter of Patreon for you podcast!

Hidden gem!

I’m so glad I stumbled across this podcast. The general topic is fascinating and the stories seem thoroughly researched. Each episode is layered and detailed but laymen-friendly. The hosts set a laid back yet engaged and empathetic tone. I’m hooked!

Very enjoyable. I’m not even an aviation enthusiast but I still enjoy it.
