[edit] Information

Planes that Changed the World These are the fascinating stories of three of the most important commercial aircraft ever to take to the skies: The Douglas DC3 was the first truly successful passenger aircraft, a plane that shrank America and established flying as the way to travel. The SR71 Blackbird re-invented the cutting edge of aviation technology with speeds of March 3 system. The Airbus A380 is the biggest commercial plane of all time, using revolutionary new technologies to take more people further than ever before. These three episodes are stories of engineering ingenuity and visionary leadership. We follow every twist and turn of their origins, design and life in service.

[edit] SR71 Blackbird

This premiere episode tells the story of how visionary geniuses from the top-secret Skunk Works, rewrote the rule-book to create a plane that was ‘all miracles’. The SR71 Blackbird was the world’s first stealth spy plane, and the fastest, highest-flying manned airplane in the world.

[edit] Douglas DC3

The DC-3 was a linchpin of global air travel; the first plane to make airlines a profit and a war hero to boot. An aircraft that rose from the ashes of a headline-making crash and a failed business idea to become the holy grail of aviation design. This is the remarkable story of the Gooney Bird.

The Airbus A380, the largest airliner in history. As tall as a 7 story building and certified to carry over 850 passengers, it dwarfs even it nearest rival. But getting the world’s only Super Jumbo into the skies was a gargantuan challenge in itself, taking nearly 20 years and costing upwards of $17 billion.
