Going Places: When Your Pilot Says, 'Wow,' And You Think, 'Wow What?'

This week the Record Bin Roulette wheel lands on ... airplane! It's all about flying as John Maynard and John Kessler find the old vinyl that went airborne for inspiration.
Tell us about some of your adventures in flight.

There are three kinds of flight experiences: The ones you forget, the ones you’ll never forget, and the ones you want to forget.

We’re revisiting those last two in this week’s Going Places. KNKX travel expert Matthew Brumley tells stories about experiences he’s had, including:

  • The pilot who said, “Wow,” into the public address system, without telling the passengers what he meant.
  • The near-miss in mid-air.
  • The differences between airline steak and airline fish. (Spoiler: It can be hard to tell.)

We want to hear about your flight experiences. Tell us stories in the comments below about funny flights, scary flights, memorable flights, and more.
