National Geographic: Supercopters [DVD]
Super Copters: Since their breakthrough invention decades after the airplane, helicopters have been vital - used for surveillance, rescue and as a weapon of war. The latest super copters are one of an advanced breed of machines - built to fly fast and silently to places helicopters could never go before, even to the reaches of inner space.
Incredible technology is making these super copters much more impervious to attack, with Kevlar and other advanced composite materials strengthening the body - while keeping it lightweight. Using live action, re-creations, amazing archival footage and advanced CGI, we marvel at the creation of today's super copters - extraordinary multipurpose helicopters for the twenty-first century.
