Hopefully it's interesting (and on iPlayer/ Youtube for a while as I am not around when it's on!), but I fear it will be dumbed down and slightly silly.

As it is BBC2 it should be a bit more sensible than you expect.

I hope so, but these sorts of live events tend to be quite dumbed down in my experience.

Anyone able to load the other program clips on the right? The trailer works fine, but I'm getting "Media selection error" with the other 3.

If you want to see it on the net get an IP blocker or via a website that offers UK IP adresses. I know some people get around it that way.

I think the BBC2 programme on a BA 747-400 D check was well received so no reason to think the same quality won't be maintained for this forthcoming set of programmes

Well... I don't need those. I have friends... I'm not saying nothing more .... It is nice that there is mkv container for video files. But If BBC would have international iPlayer I would be one of the first ones to get it.

I am not sure they ever will as its effectivly paid for by a 'Tax' or licence fee in the UK, which in my opnion is very good value for money considering the radio and television that you get for it. However some in the UK don't agree...

Back on topic hopefully this is of the quality of the program on a BA747 maintenance check.

Indeed. Another option is ''Filmon'' which is free and broadcasts with a few mins delay all the BBC channels and I find it great.

Id rather pay the BBC the EUR160 I currently have to pay here for crap TV I dont even watch !!

Its great the BBC continue to offer aviation programs. Airport was a great series back in the day and Im glad they have decided to do a modern one with a different slant.

I would pay a fee if BBC would give their programs to whole world.

OA260, I have sources that can give me HD video if needed.

I think, given the fact that Le Bourget is a French trade event, most unlikely. Possibly a snippet on BBC news and even then probably only if its to do with an order for a British carrier or a huge Airbus order.

I wouldn't hold my breath

Most educational and informative; quite like the series that was on a few years back - no sensationalism; telling it as it is.

Could watch this for hours (usually do when I'm there!)
