Caravelle On Discovery Wings Tonight

Sat Nov 15, 2003 4:59 am

Tonight starting at 6PM EST and ending at 7PM on the Discovery Wings channel they are airing a program on the Caravelle if anyone is interested! I know I'll be watching it.

Good program. I really learned a lot of new stuff about the Caravelle. Great to hear insight from the people who designed and/or set the aircraft into motion. I do have a question though. In some of the video clips, there was this bar thing that popped up on the wing. What is that? It looked waaaaay to skinny to be some sort of air brake/spoiler.
