TV Tonight: AF1 And A380

Wed Jul 11, 2001 11:56 pm

First up is a show on TLC called "Building the Biggest Sky Giant" about the A380. It airs at 7pm CDT and repeats at 10 an also this weekend.

Then after that at 8pm CDT on PBS is a National Geographic documentary on the Air Force One planes, focusing on the two 747s I imagine. There was a lengthy segment about this upcoming show on "The News with Brian Williams" last night on CNBC that was interesting. This show will repeat this weekend if you can't catch it tonight, or at least it will on my local PBS affiliate.

Good viewing tonight.

So, what did they say?
Crap? Logical? Pros? Cons?

Who saw it?

Explain something, OK?

Thanks a lot.

Best turbulences.

Well the show about the A380 was fun to see but I really didn't learn anything important I didn't already know. It was also slightly dated in that it left the impression that Boeing was still planing to develop the 747X and didn't mention the sonic cruiser idea.

I only got to watch half of the other show but it was interesting. I'll have to catch the other half this weekend.
