[edit] Information

A century of flight has seen the warplane develop from a crude instrument of wood and wires into a decisive weapon of modern combat. Join us as we trace the technologies that drove the evolution of warplanes through two World Wars and into the future. Watch aces battle for the skies over Western Europe in World War One; and as Britain's outnumbered Royal Air Force uses a new technology, radar, to fight off the Nazi war machine in World War Two. Later see designers develop the jet engine and the all-moving tail to penetrate the sound barrier; and Lockheed's "Skunk Works" race to develop groundbreaking, high-flying aircraft that could peek behind the Iron Curtain; and Stealth aircraft that would wreak havoc over Iraq. And, finally, take a look at the F-22 Raptor, the pinnacle of modern fighter technology - and the warplanes of the future, which go into battle without pilots. More Info at PBS Warplane Webpage Notes: Parts 1 and 2 were aired together, as were Parts 3 and 4. So no end credits in parts 1 and 3, but these can be found in parts 2 and 4.
