FAMOUS PARADE: The Madison Scouts Drum and Bugle Corps will be marching in the 88th annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on Nov. 27, in New York City.

IN THE AIR: Al Jazeera America will present the investigative documentary "Broken Dreams: The Boeing 787" at 6 p.m. tomorrow. In the program, an Al Jazeera investigation uncovers evidence and raises new questions about the safety of Boeing’s flagship Dreamliner plane. Al Jazeera’s investigative team, led by Will Jordan, spent a year investigating the Dreamliner – a plane created to save fuel, improve comfort and boost profits.
On Jan. 16, 2013, a new 787 Dreamliner made an emergency landing at Takamatsu airport in western Japan, after one of the aircraft’s two lithium ion batteries caught fire. After another incident, the FAA grounded all 50 Boeing 787s, marking the first time an entire Boeing fleet had been forced from service.
