Complete Discovery Channel program on the B747 from the first test flight in the 60s to the current 744. Great behind the scenes footage of the assembly plant, airline operations and history, and also mentions the Sonic Cruiser and A380. Really cool video. 46 minutes in length, produced 2002.

There is another video about the Boeing field (http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-9180496213842424378 ) and the B 52 (http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-9180496213842424378 ) documentary as well. The History Channel also keeps airing interesting stuff regularly , especially modern marvels and heavy metal.

By the way does any one have the video about the SR 71 that was aired by the discovery channel ?
