Fighter Aircraft [DVD]
Before the First World War flying had just caught the imagination of the public, yet within a short space of just a few years, all of the major nations were developing aircraft. The very nature of war itself was rapidly undergoing a transformation, with new techniques in artillery, military tactics and the armament of aircraft. This DVD profiles the dramatic impact that the First World War had on fighting aircraft design and construction. The documentary explores the technological advances made during this time with archive footage and interviews. By the end of the second world war, the age of propeller-driven fighter aircraft was over. The Jet Age Fighters chronicles the development of jet technology and its impact on the Royal Air Force with three of the force s most potent fighters. The Pilots talk about what it is like to fly these computerized, mach-speed planes, and dramatic footage from training and combat, shows them in action.
