Worlds Greatest War Planes (DVD & Magazine Set)
A profile of some of the greatest aircraft that emerged during and after the First World War.
From the very beginning, pioneers in the field of aviation have believed that the aircraft's future lay in its military uses.
That was where money could be made and so that was where they pitched their products.
The problem was that their designs could barely carry a man more than a few yards and so many military commanders were sceptical about aviation's real potential as a weapon of war.
But, the First World War changed all that and by the end of the war in 1918, aviation had proved itself and all countries has burgeoning air forces.
Since then, there have been many great combat aircraft either because they were brilliant in their role or they just happened to be the right aircraft in the right place at the right time.
This programme profiles some of the greatest.
