AvTalk Episode 108: Ian does his best to pronounce Fagradalsfjall

On this episode, we check on Iceland’s erupting volcano, dig through the Ukraine International Airlines flight 752 final report, and Gabe sits down with Amapola Flyg’s CEO to learn more about the small airline operating a fleet of Fokker 50s.

Eruption at Fagradalsfjall

The eruption at Fagradalsfjall made its fiery debut last week southeast of Iceland’s main airport, Keflavik. Fortunately, this eruption was not accompanied by a massive ash cloud, and has actually increased tourism in the area.

The PS752 final report and its discontents

Iran’s Air Accident Investigation Board released its final report on the downing of PS752 this week, reiterating the cause of the crash to be the missiles fired at the aircraft shortly after takeoff from Tehran. Both Ukraine and Canada took the unusual step of criticizing the report, with Ukraine saying that its ‘does not reveal the root causes of the tragedy or the chain of actions that led to it.’ For its part, Canada says the report says ‘what happened, but doesn’t address the why.’

Mars helicopter update

Ingenuity, the helicopter that accompanied NASA’s Perseverance rover to Mars, is set to begin its flight campaign in the next few weeks.

Amapola Flyg: an interview with the CEO

Gabe sits down with Amapola Flyg’s CEO to learn more about the small airline operating a fleet of Fokker 50s in Sweden and the airline’s importance to the Fokker fleet around the world.

Operation Cocoa Drop

Following our discussion with Sven Lidström about Troll Research Station in Antarctica, Stephen Williams got in touch with a story of his own that involves a daring rescue and tons of cocoa powder.
