Squawk 7000 – No Comment – we let the sounds tell their own story

This week’s episode is an antidote to stress, or when you can’t go flying but wish you could. Please sit back, let go, immerse yourself: it’s time to go slow. Listen to birds, light aircraft, turbine engines, parachutes descending and people chatting, a gentle breeze, and an Irish airfield’s atmosphere as you go about your busy day—a lo-fi celebration of sound. Pop on your headphones, find a corner, close your eyes and let your imagination take you where the images in your head are better than on any screen.
