Jason takes us to Malta where he spent the day with Lufthansa Technik at their MRO facility getting up close and personal with many places on the aircraft passengers don’t get to see.

Aircraft Interiors Expo
We preview the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg that we’ll be visiting the first week of April. Episode 3 of AvTalk will come to you from the Expo’s show floor.
Circular Runways
We discuss Dutch researcher Henk Hesselink’s idea for an airports with massive circular runways. Without spoiling too much, this article from NYCAviation’s Phil Derner is a close approximation of our thoughts.
The Best Job in Aviation?
Mike Isler probably has the best job in aviation. But the lawn care tractor driver at Auckland airport is a close second. We ponder what other jobs might be out there.
