Just started watching after missing the first 45 minutes. Pretty good, but 2 mistakes in the first 10 minutes of watching it.

1) That little twin jet Air Force trainer that they called a XT-37. They were actually showing a Lockheed T-33, the trainer version of the F-80.

2) When they were discussing how turboprop pilots would transition to jets, they were actually showing a radial Beech 18 or something similiar. Not a turboprop.

Interesting history nonetheless, but a channel like the History channel, doing a special, should be a bit more careful and accurate.

Hope some of you got to watch the show. It was very good, in my opinion. I just want all who read this to pray that I hit the lottery so I can buy one of those beauties.
