A380 Wing Documentary BBC2 13th Nov

Thu Nov 10, 2011 7:59 pm

Last year, the BBC showed three documentaries about major UK engineering projects, featuring the R/R Trent engines at Derby, the work of QinetiQ and the Astute nuclear subs.

Starting this Sunday, the series returns with a hour long broadcast about A380 wing production, like last year the first of three, though so far, the subjects of the other two have not been announced.

Could be interesting! In my opinion aviation needs a higher profile in the UK...!

Very good program, timeline jumps around a little and it's made for joe public so may be a bit simplistic but very good all the same.

Still available via the BBC iplayer at:
