Episode 28

Roger...or Roger that...is what a Pilot says all day long.  It indicates that a message has been recieved.  But...is the message always understood?  Are we always on the same page?  

Words can mean different things to different people which makes for some hilarious stories in the cockpit and the cabin!

The end of the episode has a great segment about the Aircraft manufacturer Fokker.  Roger? Roger that!

Another great episode, but I have one question about the Folkker 100 stories. Are you sure that\\\'s the name of the plane? As A Dutchie I was thinking it might have been Fokker instead of Folkker. Fokker is a Dutch airplane manufacturer (well, not anymore since they\\\'re bankrupt now). The Fokker 70 and 100 were quite popular aong US airlines, whereas if I google for Folkker, I don\\\'t get any results that lead to airplanes.
Just wondering. :-)
