I remember a long time ago there used to be a show called Beyond 2000 on the Discovery Channel. They showed many different inventions that would make life better in the new millenium. Of course it's not on now because we are in the new millenium. Anyway, thats not the point. On one of the shows they had a machine called the JUMBO WASH. It was basically a giant car wash that would wash a 747. Now unfortunatly I don't remember how long it took to wash the 747. Maybe somebody else saw that show and can help me out. Hope this helps.
Two rules in aviation, don't hit anything and don't run out of gas, cause if you run out of gas yer gonna hit something.

The MD-11 that arrive at GOT on Saturday morning is usually cleaned during the day. It's pulled in to the hangar at about 9-10 AM and I think it departs around 6 PM. Not 100% sure if they clean it all the time, it might leave the hangar earlier...
Just like birdwatching - without having to be so damned quiet!

Oh I wouldn't worry too much about seeing Beyond 2000 again. They'll rename it and air it again and again and again..ad nauseum.
Have you noticed that some of the AA documentaries started out named "Fasten Your Seatbelts, Please" and then the SAME shows are now playing as "Airline Story" on Discovery Wings!
Why can't they find new material?????
Does anyone remember the documentary series "Silver Skies"? I wish that Wings TV could get that one!
