Default Gemini Jets on National TV Saturday...

Latest press release from Gemini Jets:

We are pleased to announce that GeminiJets will be featured on the television series Home Made Simple with Laila Ali this Saturday, June 13 at 9 a.m./8 a.m. Central on the OWN TV channel..

I personally have never seen or heard of this show, but it is my understanding that the host is Mohammed Ali's daughter who was featured on Dancing with the Stars. I believe the story is about her son who is an avid airplane model collector and it will feature a short story about his collecting.

That sounds exciting Russell. I don't have cable but I'll download the OWN TV app and check out the Home Made Simple show this Saturday.

Excellent news for the aviation diecast collectors and Gemini Jets! Will definitely try to catch this when it's available to me. I don't have any cable TV, just have Netflix and Amazon Prime at the moment. Thank you to crownvic for sharing this TV programming information on the DAC.

Looking forward to viewing it!
Cheers! T7

That is great that the iconic Muhammad Ali's grandson is into aviation diecast collecting! Will be interesting to see his collection of models. Excellent direction with this TV program to introduce folks (young and old) to our hobby of collecting aviation models and also enlighten them with one of the diecast companies (Gemini Jets) that provide collectors with such exceptional models. Regards, T7

Such a small world, when I was growing up as a young lad in the early 70's outside Philadelphia, my parents were offered to buy a sprawling home by a custom home builder. I remember going to see it while under construction..After going back and forth for a few months the negotiations failed and guess who scooped it up?? Muhammad Ali...

For those that missed the show, you did not miss much..Mohammad Ali's grandson collects planes and home decorators were asked to come in and redo his playroom. Gemini Jets was mentioned and thanked as they donated a complete airport terminal set as part of the redesign. Funny, when the showed the airport the models had their logos blanked out..

Even funnier; Gemini Jets donated a complete airport terminal set to a rich kid. GMAFB.

Watched it - puff piece. And Mohammad Ali - As an adolescent who came of age in the 1960's, I didn't think much of him and his anti-Vietnam war stance - I put he and Jane Fondle in the same boat, and GI Jane remains on my persona-non-Grata list and I won't watch her movies. Ali, on the other hand, has become a different person for me. Sometime in the '80s I was dropping my wife off at Dulles Airport, and sitting against the vast glass facade was The Man himself - I greeted him, he was quite responsive and very pleasant. I came to respect and admire him, he was resolute in his beliefs and took his licks. Great man. Enuf, Doug

.... I watched it. Didn't blink at the right times and saw the boy's airport. Didn't think much of the decor, but Laila Ali is always pleasant to behold (she would hold my interest more than model airplanes).

My late Mom used to just LOVE Muhammad Ali. She would always cheer when he won and was upset when he lost. I became a fan because of her.
