Marija Jovanovich is a pilot for the Royal Australian Air Force where she has been flying the P-3 Orion. We discuss the aircraft, the missions, and some anecdotes.

Thank you for a fantastic podcast, I really enjoyed every minute and could have listened to Maz for hours.
Maz is a very good communicator, as you would expect for a test pilot.
I was able to attend the No.5 Squadron RNZAF 75th anniversary / 50 years of flying the P-3 event. The final interview in this podcast is with the Maintenance Flight Commander, and talks about keeping these old airframes active.
Maz is an amazing guest, a natural born storyteller with great passion for her subject and Markus is at his best here too. An outstanding episode, right there with the ones with 172 (chasing baers) with Nick Anderson and the “How Apollo…” series with David Woods.
Also, it’s always great to see powerful women in Aviation, we need many more!
As usual a very interesting, well done podcast. By the guest and host.
Talking About the direct lift in the P3, maybe you should try to make an Episode About the C-17 sometimes.
Hello, my daughter and I are both new listeners to your podcast. We especially loved this episode and Maz, I think my daughter was quite inspired by her interview. What a great role model for young girls especially “aviation nerds” haha. We are currently enjoying your flight with the thunderbirds episode!
Very nice to help inspire the next generation :-)
Another great episode, thank you very much! I’m not a pilot, so I don’t understand some of the aviation talk, but it’s still fascinating. Cheers!
I really enjoyed the episode. Good interview, interesting story about these 50 year old aircraft, and a very competent and friendly guest.
I’m letting people know about your podcasts. Good Stuff. Maz is a great communicator. I found this video of her taking about being an airforce test pilot in front of an audience at Questacon – The National Science and Technology Centre at Canberra. I hope some kid in that audience got inspired to pursue a career in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths).
Also, a radio feature on her for ANZAC day, 25th April. (Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders “who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations” and “the contribution and suffering of all those who have served”.)
Wow, die Folge war wohl das beste Interview, das ich je im Bereich Luftfahrt gehört habe. Vielen Dank dafür…
Wow, danke :-)
