Military Channel Goes Euro July 21, 2009

Posted by gregquill in Uncategorized.

I watched a program on the Military Channel the other day: “World’s Deadliest Aircraft, TBF Avenger”. This was an ugly, beautiful torpedo bomber in WWII. Carrier and shore based, it gave the U.S. Navy a huge advantage against the Japanese.

But, the narrator insisted on using feet for altitude specs (which we are used to) while defaulting to the faulty European standard of kilometers for range and kilometers per hour for speed.

What is wrong with the Military Channel?
