Description by OLDIES.com:
The history of warfare entered a radically new era in the 20th Century when man took his weapons into the sky. Not long after the Wright Brothers first conquered heavier-than-air flight, the advent of the First World War launched an unending cycle of competitive innovation to create the fastest - and deadliest - military aircraft. Today, man and machine have become a seamless composite of precision aerial firepower, as jets and helicopters quickly push land-based armor into obsolescence.
Produced for The Military Network, these "World Flight" episodes document the history of modern aerial warfare with a heavy emphasis on the latest cutting-edge aeronautical advancements. Incredible footage of the world's most powerful airborne weaponry is combined with in-depth historical narration in these compelling documentaries.
Air Force Special Operations: From the jungles of Burma in WWII to the sands of Iraq at the end of the century, the top secret activities of the AF Special Ops teams have steadily increased in number - and in strategic importance.
Choppers Over Europe: The role of helicopters in air warfare has expanded rapidly as the nimble fliers have grown faster and more heavily armed, making them critical to modern engagement.
