Episode Summary

Filmed in Russia, the United States, Japan, China, Italy, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Great Britain and Sweden, Wings Over the World pulls together a series of mammoth proportions. Containing much previously unseen footage from around the world, each hour long documentary tells the story of 20th century flight as seen through the eyes of those who were boys at the time of the Wright brothers memorable first flight - boys who grew into the men who built world aviation. It has been almost 100 years since the Wright Brothers' memorable first attempts and subsequent success with powered, controlled and sustained flight. The 20th century has seen man develop his capabilities beyond his wildest dreams. From wood and canvass biplanes to high tech spy planes, frail open cockpit passenger aircraft to supersonic transport and beyond. From pilot to pilotless. All the great pioneers are gone now, but their dreams live on in the inspiration of others who are taking aviation into the next millennium.moreless
