I thought that it was the "Discovery Wings Channel" not just a show i thought/belive that it is an entire channel dedicated to flight.

It is supossed to be a full channel dedicated to flight in general!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
I have Cable Digital and have about 3 Discovery Channels but not this one yet. I've seen adverts for it on other Discovery channels but it doesn't give a release date. I'm in London, UK.
Hope someone here knows!

Im in the UK and have the Discovery Wings channel on Sky Digital. All in all its quite good but it focuses mainly on military aviation. Very little civil aviation and what there is has usually already been shown on the main Discovery Channel. Maybe we should lobby them to include more on airliners?

This is strange i have Telewest digital, but i don't have Discovery Wings. I have all the channels avalible but not this one. Is it just Sky Digital that has it?
Yeah it's a good idea to let them know that there needs to be more General aviation on this channel. If there gona devote a channel to Aviation then why not have the most exciting part of it on the channel, Civil Aviation!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

well if we can get enough support together why not do it?? For those of us in the UK and Europe they can be contacted at mail_us@discovery-europe.com

I think its just Sky that has it - it came on in the Autumn last year. Interestingly enough the Discovery channel web-site makes no mention of it!!

I Have That Channel!

Fri Apr 27, 2001 2:35 pm

hey

I have digital cable here in Los Angeles and I have the Discovery Wings Channel. It's a channel itself 24 hours a day. Whenever i see it, its mostly history of fighter planes since the beginning. Once in a while there is some space stuff, commerical aircraft stuff. EVery sunday night there is a show called "airport". Shows daily stories at Heathrow airport. I think its very boring though. They could make the channel much better in my opinion.


see u

Hmmm, me thinking time to get rid of crappy old TeleWest Digital and get Sky Digital. All the good channels are getting taken off TeleWest Digital and going onto Sky Digital. Like "Spin City" on Paremount Comedy. Sorry but i love that show!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
