I was lucky enough to wake up and watch most of this on the Military Channel before heading out for work today. Nice overview of the Il-2. I realized that I had never actually seen WWII footage of them in action (or at least I didn't remember) until today. Very cool. Anybody else seen this?

That episode of Wings has been around for over ten years. You are talking about the one narrated by Sir Peter Ustinov, right?

Yup, that's the one. Cable TV wasn't a luxury for me for a long time. I would catch "Wings" whenever I could at my parents house, but I know there are a ton that I haven't seen. We just recently got DirecTV, and it came with the Military Channel. I just looked at the listings for the next couple of weeks, seems there's a boat load of them. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
