TV Programme Tonight

Thu Jul 08, 2004 1:50 am

Hi all !!!

For anyone in Britain that can receive Channel 5 there is a programme on tonight at 10pm called Aircrash Investigation. It looks like a new series, tonights is about that Air Transat A330 (super Glider) that made an emergency landing in the Azores.

I would like to meet that pilot who handled the aircraft, such skill !!!!

He deserves all the praise and money for what he did. Did he receive an Airmanship award? I cant remember, I hope he did.

Cheers, Steve.

Seen it last year. Very informative.

After you watch it, please post your comment of the pilot in command.

Skill yes, but he posses other personality issues.

Ah I'm glad this is on Channel 5 tonight, my mate told me he saw it on Sky last week and I was gutted I missed it. Sounds really interesting with it being about the Air Transat Glider.

I saw "Air Accident Investigation" on this a while ago on Sky's Discovery Wings. Unbelievable flying skills!

I watched it Smile

I can't believe they tried to blame the pilots when they were only following the procedure in the checklist.

I cant believe what happened last night!! (no not that). I started the thread last night to inform anyone of the programme that didnt know. Sat there, nice cold beer, fresh pizza and for the first time ever I had my other half watching an aircraft programme with me, we are really getting into the programme when half way through - POWER CUT!!!!!!!!

I could not believe it, two hours the electric went off, missed the rest of the programme and the beer in the fridge was in danger of getting warm.

I dont have satelite TV (well I do but I cant say) so it looks like I will have to wait for it to come on again.

Cheers,

Steve.

Anyone remember the programme BlackBox, that was a pretty good and imformative series, just been watching the film about the 737 over Hawaii when the fuselage blew-out "Miracle Landing" its called, was on C5, some dodgy special effects, but some great ones too.
Its not the fall that kills u, its the sudden stop at the end..

I will agree with you on the special effects. A bit "thunderbirds", but great skill to the crew. Black Box was a very informative programme and no doubt will be on again soon.
