Gulfstream 550 on Discovery Channel

The Gulfstream G550 is landing this summer on a TV screen near you.

On Friday (July 29), the ultra-long-range aircraft— and the people who build it—will be featured on the Discovery Science (SCI) Channel’s, “How Do They Do It,” a popular technology program that goes “behind the scenes to discover how to do and make the things that form the world we know today.”

The program is broadcast in Europe, Asia, North and South America, Southern Africa and Australia to more than 1.5 billion Discovery
Communications subscribers. A team from a television production company, WAGtv in London, spent two days at Gulfstream Savannah in January to capture the 18 hours of footage necessary for the 10-minute segment on building a G550. In addition to video of the
production floor, the segment will feature interviews with a number of Gulfstream employees from initial and final phase manufacturing.

Gulfstream is in good company on the program, which has looked at a number of high-profile processes, including how NASA trains astronauts, how jets are launched from aircraft carriers and how Bentleys are made. So, if you want to know how to build a G550—or if you just want to catch the rising stars in our midst—tune in to the Discovery Science Channel at 8 p.m. Eastern this Friday. The program will be rebroadcast at 11 p.m. and should be shown another dozen times in the next month.
