[edit] Information

In 1943, in a circus tent in Burbank, CA, a bunch of revolutionary thinkers first gathered together in secrecy to build America's first jet fighter. They were rule benders, chance takers, corner cutters-people who believed that nothing was impossible. In the decades that followed, this secret club would create some of the most iconic flying machines in history: the U-2 spy plane, the SR-71 Blackbird, the F-117 stealth bomber - each of them so unfamiliar, so far ahead of their time, that they were often mistaken for something otherworldly. For the first time in its 75-year history, Lockheed Martin is opening their hangar doors and pulling back the veil on "Skunk Works," the secret program and subdivision long hidden from the public. It features never-before-seen material: rare photos, films locked away for decades, and entries from the private journals and logbooks of Skunk Works' founder and aerospace legend, Kelly Johnson. Johnson, as voiced by actor Dennis Quaid, congregated a team comprised of innovators, rule benders and chance takers to partake in the aerospace organization responsible for creating the most innovative machines in modern history - the U-2, the SR-71 Blackbird and the first Stealth bomber to name a few. From the mysterious Area 51 test facility to the latest "spy" plane, this documentary goes deep into a world that is still shrouded in secrecy - a world where wars are won not on a battlefield but at a design table of men drafting aviation blueprints and working with their hands to create machines from the ground up. Directed by Emmy Award winning director Rory Karpf, THE UNTOLD STORY of Skunk Works examines the top-secret organization that for decades, starting in the 1940s, clandestinely churned out the world's most advanced technology and designed highly classified aircraft. Utilizing the narration of Skunk Works team leader Kelly Johnson as inspired by his personal logbooks and meticulous diaries, viewers will be immersed in the secret Skunk Works story of the last 75 years. Produced by First Row Films in association with A+E Originals for HISTORY
