A unique insight into the finest aircraft of our time. This unique collection will thrill aeroplane enthusiasts time and again. Orville Wright achieved his dream of taking to the skies when he flew a powered aircraft for the first time in 1903. Since then the Royal Air Force has defended Britain's skies and those of her allies with such planes as the Spitfire, one of the most charismatic aircraft ever to fly. We also look at the development of the BF 109 as well as the ME 262, the world's first operational jet fighter along with other jet aircrafts that have become household names. Completing the series we progress to more modern day planes such as the Boeing B17, the F-16 and offer an insight into the development of Concorde.
