"...I've been told there have been two Discovery Channel Wings segments on the P-3. Since I'm still in the dark ages and don't own cable I haven't been able to see and tape these segments. Would you know how to get a copy of these segments? I'm a recently retired P-3 Aircrewman and would love to have them in my video library. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated..."
