On this episode of AvTalk, we discuss the aviation incidents that have occurred in the past two weeks and delve into the fortunes of major carries in the Middle East. And we’re joined again by Jeremy Dwyer-Lindgren to discuss vintage aviation advertising and… strapping rockets to a Convair?

Saudi Arabian Airlines flight SV3818 (operated by Onur Air) diverted to Jeddah and landed with a retracted nose gear.
