Discovery Channel's Plane Crash
 
Anybody catch this special? Basically, it's a mini-documentary of a giant experiment to crash a Boeing 727 into the desert so that they can study what happens during a plane crash and how safety could potentially be improved. It's pretty damn fascinating.

Not to mention the fact that they apparently spent $4 million on the show. That's got to be one of the biggest budgets ever for a cable show.

Anyway, anybody watch it? (And if not, they're repeating it a couple more times at least.)

Pawn Stars for me

Oh yeah, I forgot about that. It was on late a few nights ago and I only caught the beginning of it.

I watched it and was terribly unimpressed. It was almost like they wanted a bigger mess but they blew the money on a one shot deal. Plus the Mexican government was on them to clean up the mess and get out.

Duck Commander is a far better show anyway

Yeah, though it's still pretty impressive. There's a reason it's only been done once or twice - it's really damn hard to crash a plane safely!

It's on tomorrow night.

Set to record.

GloryDayz 10-09-2012 08:49 PM

Did somebody screw up and leave the lens cap on? Ha!

I believe we recorded it, but if not, this will be a good reminder to do so. I was very interested in it from the previews.

My god. How many people were on board when they did it? That's terrible.
