What can we learn/do on multiple long plane rides?

We're about to take a trip with five, 5+ hour plane journeys, none of which will have decent in flight entertainment, and are looking for inspiration of things we might do/learn in that time for entertainment? We're looking for ideas beyond general reading/podcasts/movies/sleeping, particularly since we love learning new things. [more inside]

Forgotten Toy Filter

So, today, for no readily apparent reason, I was visited by a very vivid memory of a toy I had as a kid, some time in the early 70's. They were these die cast metal planes with little plastic landing gear and cockpits, kind of futuristic looking, in jewel-tone colors, that you flew on a little zip line setup that involved a little gun like thing with a little deck for the plane to sit on until you released it. Looking on Ebay reveals nothing like I remember. Anyone know what these things were called.

Search for flights, excluding codeshare options

Is there a website like Kayak, but with the option to filter by the airline that operates the flight (i.e. to exclude codeshares)? Or is it possible to do this on Kayak? I have some United credit to spend, and it's proving non-trivial because I can't spend it on flights operated by Continental et al.

Was that a Stealth plane?

Was that a Stealth plane? UFO? Anyone see it? On Wednesday 12/15 my SO in Northern Staten Island saw something in the sky heading South from NYC. She said it was a triangle, very fast and she heard no sound like a jet or chopper. No news reports, nothing on Notify NYC. Maybe it was going to McGuire AFB?

When a plane crashes, what do the airlines put on the "Arrival" board in the terminal?

When a plane crashes, what do the airlines put on the "Arrival" board in the terminal? I would assume they start with "delayed," but I have no idea what they would change that to once it's verified the plane is never going to land at that airport.
