The DVD version of this program contains an interesting extra segment on American Eagle, focusing on the flight crew. Worth checking out if you can find it.

Yeah it's been on for a couple years now... very interesting program. I liked the figures he gave on tankering fuel... forget the exact numbers., but he he told how many extra gallons of fuel it required for X number of gallons to be tankered.

In a lot of airplanes, it's 10%. You'll burn 100 pounds to carry 1000 pounds.
