It will repeat at 9:00 pm pacific time on the discovery channel. I will watch the whole thing then, because I only caught the last half of it. The parts that I saw included a showing of a stress test where they broke both wings 25 feet above normal levels and the last flight of an American Airlines Pilot.
It was worth watching.

Great show! Thank you UAL747-600.  

Q: One of the pilots mentioned a 737 flight into Reno with a rudder malfunction. Does anyone have more info on that flight? Airline? How many times has this happened aside from the accidents that we hear about?

That was a great show! I hope in the future I get the chance to fly on a 777. I heard the pilot of the American 777 say that he previously flew for AIR CAL and on a 737 flight to Reno he had that rudder malfunction.

This is probably on Discovery Channel USA. As this is a global internet environment, it should be noted there are other Discovery Channels based in other countries that are not carrying the program at this time.

I saw it, thanks for the info. They did stress tests on the wings and the wings eventually snapped 24 feet above their normal position. They also showed testers throwing ice sheets and dead birds at an engine and the titanium blades on the engine sliced them up without a problem. A very good program.

Hello. I saw it too and I taped it. I thought it was quite enjoyable, including watching the AA pilot's retirement flight. Anyway, according to my TV Guide, in Connecticut anyway, the 777 show is supposed to be on again sometime on Saturday but I can't think of the time right now and my TV Guide is not at hand. Anyway, see ya'll later.

I was channel flipping, and then I flipped and there was a 777 resplendant in Boeing colours doing a lazy turn. I missed about 10-12 min of the beginning, but otherwise the best 777 tv programme I've ever seen.

The show was very interesting. I taped it, so i will probably watch it again tonight. Too bad we don't get 777's in ABQ, i sure hope we do one day, but first they got to expand the 'port in order to have gate room. today's count of empty gates is 4.
