I have been fortunate to see one at an airshow in the past. Great aircraft.

We saw it at RAF Leuchars and it came over here once when it was at the Sunderland Air Show, which, sadly, are no longer being held.

One of my favourite aircraft. The Short Sunderland.

One of my favorites as well! "The Porcupine".

I will watch this when I have some time.

I swear if I ever get over there I am looking up you and JD and we're going to Duxford.

Was overall disappointed with the Pacific.  Too scattered.
Hoping this will have a good storyline.

Yeah - The Pacific wasn't my fav.

Seems like I have to get Apple TV at some point!

Thank you, besilarius. I will definitely check that out.

IMHO. Apple TV is still a pretty good deal as streaming services go. Waiting for new seasons of "Silo" and "Shrinking".
