Default New Show " Warplanes" - Military Channel

The new show " Warplanes" started up on the Miltary Channel and I already learned a few things I didn't know. The DH Mosquito was made from ply and balsa. This twin, used primarily as a target spotter was the fastest bomber during the war. They also discussed their radar navigation system called G. The Brits were way ahead of their time.

Have added this to the DVR so I can watch it along with Great Planes

Been DVR'ing it, haven't had a chance to watch it, though.

Great planes is cool, too, but I think they need new writers and editors. 'each is a unique aircraft, with limitless capabilities...' If you had a plane with limitless capabilities, then congratulations! You just designed the last plane the world will ever need! And The C-130 episode had narration that made it sound like the turboprop engine was invented because of the C-130, which of course it wasn't.
