I know Scott was just reporting what he read, but does anyone else
note the irony here... a show called, "Jumbo Jet Crash: The Ultimate
Safety Test", and they are going to crash a what, Convair 990?!?!

Why not a report on "Modern Minivan Safety Test", and crash some old
VW Vanagon's?  What is the link between "jumbo jets" and a Convair 990
(more the size and vintage of a B-707)?  Of course, Scott provided the
network's answer....Sweeps Week!  Why don't they just show Executive
Decision, or one of the later Airplane disaster movies?
