AvTalk Episode 35: A Whale of a Time

On this episode of AvTalk we break records, we learn more about aircraft leasing with our resident numbers expert Gavin Werbeloff, and Jonathan Khoo joins us to insist he isn’t an avgeek while listing the dozens of lesser-known carriers he’s flown on around the world.
