Description

Man has been fascinated with flight and how to achieve it for over a thousand years. As far back as the 14th century great inventors were trying to design ways in which to achieve it. This entertaining program examines the history of mans endeavours to achieve flight, from the first concept drawings of Leonardo de Vinci to modern scram fighter jets travelling at Mach 4. We look at the development of the jet engine over a two thousand year period, the science behind how it works and the groundbreaking inventors, including the Wright brothers that made flight today possible.
