If it's the same as my sky...i wouldn't get your hopes up.
Over here wings isn't on anymore and there isn't much aviation related stuff...only now and then.

Most of them are a bit boring, but then sometimes you get a total surprise. Just the other day they showed a 1 hour documentary on getting the Concorde back in the air after the Paris crash. It was awesome!

Wings can be very good sometimes!
The best programme to watch is Flight Deck.
The only problem is that Discovery Wings doesn't start until 6pm and finishes at 12:00pm.
And Flight Deck is only on, on Saturdays and Mondays.

i have it, and unfortunatly (for me anyway) the channel seemes to be dominated by Military Aircraft programs where as i like to see the documentaries about commercial aircraft. Flight Deck and other Commerical Aircraft programs they have on are good though.

It used to be available through OnDigital/ITV Digital, but has now been replaced by normal discovery. It was mostly military with the odd repeat of a civil airliner program. Don't get excited about it by any means

I used to have Discovery Wings, and I wasn't all that impressed. It mainly shows military orientated stuff, especially WWII material.

Flight Deck is indeed interesting, although it is dated. One episode is about a flight on an Air UK Leisure 737-400, this airline stopped flying quite some time ago.

The best thing I ever saw on the channel was a series about the B777, called 21st Century Jet. This covered the entire development of the 777, from initial production to service entry with United. It really was an excellent series, and I'd love to see it again.

The 21st Century Jet program about the 777 was good but again it was a repeat that had already been shown on Channel 4 I think.
