21st Century Jet (the program you talk of) was bloody brilliant. I have the odd episode on vhs somewhere. I really wish I could get the whole series on DVD or video - in the UK, but you can't
PBS no longer sells it. I have seen DVD's at aviation trade shows but their just copys of the tapes. I could make you a copy of the 5 tape series on VHS but it would be NTSC and not PAL. If you can get around that let me know.
Yeah if a docu is made not only will Discovery Wings show it in 2009 (or earlier for the A380), but it will still be on there in 2025. And on every 3-4 hours too. I like Wings, but it gets so frustrating sometimes when I see the same show multiple times a month.
That bugs me too, due to the fact that thay don't show all the epesoids of WINGS. I have a bunch on tape from when I was a kid that I have never seen on Dicovery Wings. Like F-111, A-5, XB-70, B-52, F-16, and most of the "Centery Jets"
And like you if I see one more epesoid of RED WINGS or WINGS of the LUF
I'll puke. I know of epesiods of M*A*S*H* that have seen less airtime than some of Discovery Wing's shows.
