Co-host Erin Kirkland and I were hosted at the Era Alaska hangar at the Anchorage airport. Glorious. Big planes. Big hangar–great stuff! LISTEN UP!!
Up front, we talk “steals and deals” on air fares, including some new restrictions with Alaska Airlines’ Visa card.
Our guests included Micah Lillard, Era’s marketing manager. Also, Mike Yorke from the FAA stopped in to talk about the FAA’s “Circle of Safety” program in conjunction wtih the Medallion Foundation.
We took a moment to highlight our delightful sound engineer, Kirby Kauffman. Here, she strolls aboard one of Era’s Dash-8 aircraft wearing the stylish-and-secure PacSafe “Slingsafe 300″ from Magellan’s Travel Store. HA
During the final segment, Erin shares some family travel moments and we recall some great trips to Valdez’s July 4 celebration + across Kachemak Bay to “Across the Bay Tent and Breakfast”.
