Saturday, business analyst David Johnson–who made an award-winning documentary about Braniff for PBS called Tailspin–will screen the doc and moderate a panel discussion with some of the old airline’s principal players. Let’s just hope none of the 10,000 show up with tomatoes. We hear some of them are still pretty hacked off.
