Any chance of some youtube videos on airlines and sliding loads?

There are a numbe of videos on utube about calibrating VNAs - some pretty alful. There are a number of videos from Agilent about specific instruments (PNAs, FieldFoxs etc). But I can't find anything about how to use sliding loads *properly*, or verification kits *properly*. Yet the sliding loads and airlines are pretty expensive  and easily damaged items. 

Perhaps I am thick, but I don't feel that confident in using these. I recall reading somewhere, which was *not* an Agilent document, something like 

"Never use an airline unless you have been shown how to" 

I've got 

* Sliding loads in 85052B (3.5 mm 26.5 GHz) cal kit
* Sliding load in 85050B (18 GHz APC7) cal kit
* Airlines in the 85055A N verification kit
* Airlines in the 85053B 3,5 mm veriification kit
* Airlines in the 85051B APC7 verification kit. 

I would like to see someone using them *properly*. 

Anyone fancy showing their skills.
