I've never met anyone else who's actually seen (or even heard of) this. Robert Cringley, of PBS's 'Triumph of the Nerds' fame--and evidently airplane enthusiast--sets out to build an airplane in 30 days more or less by himself. Not near as epic or quick-moving as Cringley's 'Triumph of the Nerds', but interesting nonetheless. Cringley starts out enthusiastic, but his demeanor degrades quickly as the mishaps start piling up. Worth seeing because the story is unusual, and Cringley's narrative is well done. Amateur aviation enthusiasts will be particularly interested, most probably, but knowledge of this subject is not required. Perhaps a little long at three hours, and it moves a somewhat slow at times. Overall, an interesting documentary about Cringley's attempt to keep everything under control as he falls behind schedule and time is running out. If PBS ever replays this, it's worth tuning in.
