Just to emphasize, France 5 is not a 24/7 news channel, in fact it has no news at all, it's a public channel, part of the France Télévisions group, news bulletins are aired on France 2 and France 3, the 24/7 channel being France 24. On France 5, there are a lot of documentaries, and live shows. This one, C dans l'air (It's in the air, my poor attempt at a translation) is a daily current affairs show, that picks one theme each day, and invites specialists on the subject (for example, without having watched that one yet, I would bet my house Gérard Feldzer is there, he always is when it's about planes). The quality is not always good, depending on the people there really. The introducing mini documentaries are typical TV
"journalism", sometimes it's even the same ones that are shown on France 2 and 3, so this mistake doesn't surprise me, even if I too am appalled by it.
What is said about the Spanair crash is also wrong, there was nothing defective with the wings, they were just improperly configured, then the Helios crash, they say that the plane stalled, maybe so but I wouldn't say it like this, it flew until there was no fuel anymore. At least the Boeing A380 mega blunder was immediately corrected.
