    Yeah, they had the captain-out-of-window episode on the Air Emergency marathon too a few days back. Hands down the best episode they showed that day.

    The incidents are real. Previous episodes have included Swissair flight 111, ASA flight 529, the Air Transat A330 that lost both engines over the Atlantic, the American MD-80 that crashed on approach to LIT, and the Air France A300 that was hijacked in Algiers.

    The episode he is referring to is an incredible episode; I have seen it many times. The window blows out of the Bac-111, sucking the captain halfway out and pinning him on the roof of the aircraft. The FAs hold on to his legs until the copilot lands the aircraft and the captain amazingly survives the ordeal. Be sure to tune in if you can...

    I just finished watching "One Wing Flight" about ASA flight 529 about 10 minutes ago. What a tragedy...

    and

    "A Wounded Bird"
    Shortly after takeoff, one of four propellers on Flight ASA 529 fails; crew and passengers survive the crash, but lives are lost in a raging fire as people make their escape; investigators determine that corrosion caused the failure.

    I found the listings for the upcoming episodes here.

    Okay, now i'm mighty pissed off, Starchoice (don't know about other providers) took away my Discovery Wings and replaced it with a Military channel (now theres 2 channels that'll show nothing but Hitler). Although I should be thankful it wasn't a channel dedicated strictly to trading Spaces which probably will happen soon with my freakin luck.
    The weird thing is, I told my mother and she said that they've been advertising the switch for months...i'm in front of the t.v most of the day doing homework and I didn't see one ad saying it was switched (I feel like Homer in that Simpsons when Springfield gets 2 area codes and Homer doesn't know despite what Lenny and Carl say)

    Re:

    The only time I watch TLC and Discovery is when they show aviation programs, and TORNADO VIDEOS.
