Excellent. One of the very few reasons I keep paying for cable.

Yeah but it's fake drama with airplanes... and at least one dude who'll still land a 180 in the backcountry after breaking his neck doing it... literally...

I'll take it over "CSI: Bentonville, AR" or "Survivor: Manhattan Hot Dogs" any day of the week.

Haha "She was murdered on Aisle 3 with a 50oz pickle jar" the prime suspect is on People of Walmart site.

I'm glad the rumor of the show being cancelled was false. The rumor was that the FAA had a problem with some of the flying they do and went after them. So Jim Tweto pulled the plug on Discovery.

He's too savvy a business person methinks. All he has to do is say, "never ever show X, Y, or Z ever again on the show, and I get first right of refusal on all footage".

I doubt he'd kill the cash cow. He'd just milk it differently.

We'll see if the footage becomes significantly more benign this season....

Re: Flying WIld Alaska returns....

I can see that happening. I question sometimes their definition between VMC and IMC. I hope the whole Ariel vs pilot license won't be over blown this year. Half of that was her just doing her acting thing.

Personally, I'd love to see a "Survivor: McMurdo"

But then I don't think the franchise standards of skimpy clothing on a beach would work quite so well there.

Re: Flying WIld Alaska returns....

The melodrama and misrepresenting VMC as IMC is just the price of watching the show. As a previous poster said, it's about AIRPLANES! Besides that Ariel has yet to damage my eyeballs.

I honestly have no idea, I'm not sure what Netflix schedule is for uploading new seasons of TV shows.

It's available on iTunes. Downloaded it last night. $23 for the full season.

Re: Flying WIld Alaska returns....

I watched some of the episodes when they were showing re-runs the other night. Pretty cool...and those pilots deal with some serious weather conditions.

Re: Flying WIld Alaska returns....

I have a hard time stomaching the manufactured "drama". There is some great photography, and anytime Jim Tweto flies the backcountry the smart guys are taking notes. Outside of that it's actually pretty mundane.

It's been posted before. Besides, soon if not already, you could just look her up in the airman database.

I've indefinitely tabled my plans to fly up to Alaska in my Cardinal...

Oh wait, she lives in California... and I was hoping to get out that way in the next year or so...

But OTOH, she probably doesn't do any flying down in the lower 48.

easy, just assure the FAA that the part where they were legal was left out in editing. And I've seen much more fake shows on 'reality' tv.
