Default PBS Nature Channel -Raptor Force

My son the Air Force test pilot, is featured in the PBS documentary about how NASA and the Air Force is studying the Raptor birds aerodynamics to design the next generation space craft and both current and future fighter aircraft. He is shown in his glider and his F-22 and is interviewed about his project for his master's thesis in aeronautical engineering working with NASA

In keeping with his nature, he never mentioned his national tv exposure to either his mother or father

Please check your local PBS listing for the time of the show, it's entitled "Raptor Force" on the Nature Channel

You can't miss him, I've been told I look "alittle" like him. His mother and I have order a "few" copies (VBG)

Venice,

This sounds very interesting! I'm an aviation enthusiast, and would love to see this program.

I don't have cable, however. Is this show on the regular (over the air) PBS, or is it on a cable version?

Good to see you posting again,

Dean

Venice,

Sorry -- but regular over the air, or cable? And do you know when it's scheduled to be broadcast? I checked the PBS listings for this week, and it's not listed.

Thanks,

Dean

go to the PBS website and type in your zip code and then the name of the show and it will come up with your local station's broadcast schedule of the program

Venice, I found out that it will be on channel 2 here in the Palm Beach area at 1AM 2/21/07. I'll set the VCR to record. Sounds like a great show.
