Caustic Soda’s going down in flames with our latest episode – Air Disasters! Special guest Lucas Black joins us all the way from the UK via the magic of the Interwebs (and Skype and our engineer Mike). We look at some of the world’s worst aviation disasters, from the Hindenberg to 9/11 to the horrible Sknyliv airshow disaster in Ukraine.
We had a few technical difficulties while recording this episode so please excuse the glitches and odd sounds you may hear, as well as some fairly obvious edits.
Music: “Flying Trapeze 1943” sung by Virginia O’Brien

Warning: This one gets GRUESOME with graphic depictions of the aftermath.
Lucas: 8/10 (the cockpit to cockpit USA/USSR bit is the “Superman mini balloons” that ruins it for me…)
Lucas: 10/10 – Purely for the memories of laughing at it with my dad so much we couldn’t breath. And the boobs.
Lucas: 9/10 Great bit of twisting
No Highway in the Sky:
Lucas: 10/10 – Proper film from when they made proper films, what ho chaps!
Lucas: 5/10 I want to suspend belief… I really do…
Lucas: 8/10 even though it has Leo in it.
