Channel 5 7.30 "Weapons of WWII". The role of midget submarines. Followed at 8.00 by "Search for the Lost Fighter Bombers". Two amature explorers set out to locate a squadron of a/c (P-38's, B-17's) that made a forced landing in Greenland in WWII.
Channel 5 is certainly coming up with some good stuff for us military historians these days!

I wouldn't join any club that would have ME as member!

Some of us can't get Channel 5, alas. Can't even get all the Freeview channels in Bournemouth. Enjoy!

Not getting channel 5 is not always a bad thing http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

"As weaponry, both were good, but in far different ways from each other. In a nutshell, I describe it this way: if the FW 190 was a sabre, the 109 was a florett, or foil, like that used in the precision art of fencing." - Gunther Rall

These programs have been on Discovery or History
channels & if its the same program I can highly recommend "Search for the Lost Fighter Bombers".
Amazing recovery of an aircraft.

Thanks 4 the heads up.

It`s funny with this Channel 5 thing. I live about 200 metres from a friend, he can`t get Ch 5, but I can!

But then again, like a lot of my friends he hasn`t the insane interest in WWII stuff like I have and he`s got Sky which I haven`t (and will never have with any luck!)

So we`re all happy!

A treat for P-38 fans.

Did you see how truely elegantly that test pilot landed the P-38? It was perfect. Glided in on a sharp left hand turn, leveled out just over the threshold, and touched down almost immediately without the slightest bump. Considering it was the first time he flew that plane, you've got to take your hat off to him.
