787 - Will We See The Documentary?

Mon Sep 26, 2011 9:31 pm

Back in the 1990's, I remember watching "21st Century Jet", a documentary charting the development and launch of the 777. So I was wondering can we expect something similar now that the 787 has finally been delivered? Does anyone know if a team from Discovery have been shadowing Boeing's every move since the 7E7 was dreamt up? Would be a fascinating watch, given the birthing pains of this big jet...

There is a documentary airing Tuesday evening at 9 pm Eastern Time in the USA on CNBC.

Discovery has been around. There's also all the footage they shot to support the Legends of Flight IMAX movie, which goes back a loooong time.

It took so long that it will be a year-long documentary.

I am really looking forward to this. The advertisement sports some amazing air to air shots of the new bird. I will be utliyzing the trusty TIVO as I will be at work when it airs.

Hmm... I think that I'll have to wait for the DVD/BR release. :/
