Sorry if this was brought up recently, the search engine isn't working for me. Tonight the History Channel is going to airing the Runways episode of Modern Marvels at 8pm EST. Looks interesting.
If this is the same thing I've seen, and I think it is, it's a very interesting program. It talks about the Space Shuttle runway, it's pretty cool! Thanks for the heads-up, I plan on watching it again.
I watched both shows also.. (while I was 'studying' for a final).. I was very surprised at the versatility of the J57 also. I never realized it was hung on so many aircraft.. Modern Marvels has some good programs..
Caution wake turbulence, you are following a heavy jet.
