How cool is this???? Four pilots are given the chance to compete for nine hours of training in the only 2 seat spitfire still in operation. Nice interviews with WWII RAF pilots, historic footage, and great air-to-air footage!!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif Why can't US television be as cool as what the Brits get to watch? Each episode runs 45 minutes http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

History International ran this show several times last year. There's also a show where descendants of Lancaster crewman get trained to fly a Lanc. Cool stuff.

Just before the second Gulf War, there was one planned where they were going to take twenty guys out onto the moors and set them up in soggy, WW1 style trenches. Then gas and shell them for thirty days straight to see how they got on. It wasn't made clear if the audience could SMS the name of the trench-mate who'd get sent "over the top" each week. But it would have been interesting anyway.
