A neat bit of footage from PBSs 777 development special, 21st Century Jet, that aired some 10 or 11 eleven years ago.

Numerous threads on that special in the database.

That is from the 1996 TV series called "21st Century Jet - The Building of the 777". The actor Peter Coyote is reading the script. It was quite shocking that the American "Public Broadcasting Corporation", you know, the people who brought us Kermit the Frog and Mister Rogers, would produce such a fine program about an airliner. The series was in five one hour parts and can be easily found on VHS tapes. It's well worth the price!

$750,000 for 12 tyres... ouch! thats $62,500 per tyre. I know they need to be strong, handle high speeds and handle impacting the runway and all but thats still a lot of money! About twice what I was expecting them to cost.

Interesting vid! They sure do heat up a lot alright.

The wheels and brakes were destroyed as well and I consider the likelyhood high that the landing gear structures and systems were also damaged. Look at the big picture and the costs aren't so enormous......

oh for sure... tyres are just the start of the costs when this sortof thing happens... I was just a little surprised by how much each one is however.

I really enjoyed this program, as well as the joint task fighter competition documentary.

Knowing Boeing, I expect that film crews will have carte blanche access to the 787 development program as well.

I would really love to see a warts & all documentary about the A380. Assuming that plane will go on to be a big success, it would be fascinating to get an insider look at the birthing pains.

Does anyone know where that test was performed? They mentioned a 15k foot runway, so I'd imagine it can't be up in the Seattle area.

Shocking? Really? Do you only equate PBS to childrens programming? PBS has produced quite a few quality programs over the years that have nothing to do with childrens interests. It is my understanding that childrens programming is only a small part of what PBS is about.

PBS is the network that has shows Nova, one of the longest-running and best documentary programs on television. Maybe it's on opposite WWE Smackdown?

Yeah, does anyone know where the A340-600 brake test (FAILURE) is? Pretty scary stuff with all those tires exploding and the gear catching on fire.

There was a great 6-part documentary on German/French TV channel ARTE.

I agree that PBS produces some of the finest programming on television, I would like to clarify something.
The footage in the first post was indeed taken from the program "21st Century Jet." However, this series was NOT produced by PBS. This series was produced in 1995 by Skyscraper Productions for KCTS/Seattle and Channel 4, London.

I am reading it right off the dvd box that I have in my collection.

That being said, it is a wonderful series that should be a must in any aviation enthusiast's collection.

Yes, the testing was done at Edwards.
