World War One dramatically changed the face of warfare. Machine guns, gas, tanks and long range artillery were added to the ever expanding arsenal - and the weapon that more than any impacted on the wars to be fought in the tumultuous century ahead was the aircraft. Since the first powered flight in the beginning of the 20th century, through to the end of the war in 1918, aircraft designs had developed rapidly, resulting in a very efficient weapon - the Fokker, Nieuport, Albatross and Sopwith, to name a few - and the development did not slow down over the following decades, as Messerschmitts, Zeros, Spitfires, Hurricanes, Stukas, MILITARY AlRCRAFT OF THE 20TH CENTURY is a series of eight programmes featuring the aircraft that had the most significant impact on the numerous military conflicts during the last century: This collection serves as an introduction to military aircraft, and as a historical document It presents important technical data and actual combat footage, some, by definition, quite rare. Fighter Aircraft of World War One This volume features World War One aircraft including the Sopwith Camel and Manfred von Richthofen’s famous triplane, the Fokker Dr. I. This programme also includes a special feature on von Richthofen, based on his own writings. Fighter Aircraft of World War Two Volume two of this series takes a journey forward to the fighters of the Second World War – including the iconic Spitfire, Hurricane, Me-I09, P-5l, Corsair, Zero and others. Attack Aircraft post world War Two The Second World War may have ended bit the development of military aircraft continued. This volume looks at post WWII fighters including MiG-17 through 29, Sabre, Mirage, AV-86 Harrier, F-15, F-4, F-16, F-18, Tomado and more. Bomber Aircraft of World War Two Bombers played a major role in World War II and they are the central feature of this programme which looks at, amongst others, the JU-87 ‘Stuka’, the HeinkeI HE-III, the Lancaster, the Mitsubishi Gi M, the B-17 and the Mosquito - plus the last mission of the Memphis Belle. Bomber Aircraft post world War Two Bombers had a major role to play beyond World War Two, and this programme examines some of the most significant to be developed during this era, from the B-52, through the Lancer 10 the B-2 Stealth bomber. Reconnaissance Aircraft Reconnaissance aircraft play a significant role in both war and peace time. This programme looks several planes that were deployed in this crucial activity including the RA-5C, the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, PC3 Orion and the Grumman E-2 Hawkeye. Transport Aircraft Transport aircraft may not attract as much attention as fighter planes and bombers, but their role in warfare is just as critical. This programme throws the spotlight on transport aircraft including Hitler’s favourite, the JU-52, and the successful American workhorse, the DC-3, e C-130 Hercules and the Soviet II 76. Helicopters As the 20th century marched forward, military aircraft changed significantly and the helicopter revolutionised the way war was conducted. This programme features many famous “choppers” including The Bell UH-1 ‘Huey’, the Black Hawk, the Apache, the Cobra, the Sea Hawk and Sea King, the Mangusta and more.
