On History Channel January 14th:

7-8pm -- Modern Marvels - Secret Luftwaffe Aircraft of WWII.
German military aircraft designs were decades ahead of their Allied
counterparts. To insure Luftwaffe superiority, their designers tested
advanced concepts including swept-wing and vertical take-off aircraft
and stealth bombers. Using computer-generated images and archival
footage, we trace development of Hitler's airborne arsenal.

Finally they have a Modern Marvels episode I will watch. I think last week they had one on "Pigs". http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Bacon is like the shrimp of the land:
Bacon sandwich, bacon and eggs, bacon and grits, bacon and crab (Forgot the name of the dish), bacon and bacon, bacon salad, bacon with salad, bacon and... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

There was a "Modern" Marvels episode on the other night called "70's Tech". Not very modern, but it sure brought back some memories!

They did mention VTOL aircraft in the description, so maybe they will cover that one as well.

Informative program but kind of cheesy. BTW is this part of the 'Weapons of War' series that often ran on Discovery Channel?
