It was great from 6pm-7pm...but this last 10 minutes has been utmost incredibly boring.

I dont get the point...build the excitement up from 6pm-7pm with music, videos, etc. Then at 7pm drag us down to boredom...with people talking with mundane voices.

Just like listening to a professor in college that has that same kind of voice as Tom / the guy who test flighted the 2nd 747.

Ugh...i'm taking my nap in a moment.

The 2nd 747 test flight guy was asked what the longest flight he was on...he said Singapore - New York on a very slow Airbus (hence the Singapore A345 flight), lol.

The Euros up late at night remind me of the time I went to sleep waiting for the A380 to take its first flight.

I was awake for a long time, awaiting the first flight (I live near SYQ, hence why I stayed awake for long).

BTW: Nice joke from Carson.  Wink

So long as they don't keep making Airbus jokes I think that would be tasteful. I think an Airbus joke could have been better placed though.

Northwest Cable News.

And nope. They showed about 10 seconds of her in the Dreamliner livery. Unlike what many (myself included) thought, she does not have an NH tail.
