Many consider the prolific British engineer Sir George Cayley to be one of the most important people in the history of aeronautics since it was he who designed the first actual model of an aeroplane. It was a British man Sir Frank Whittle who is credited with single-handedly inventing the turbo jet engine. From the first aircraft they produced to the impressive array of military aircraft and bombers, and the incredible productions today, the British have always played a very important role in the aeronautic industry. As early as 1912, British firm Vickers were experimenting with machine gun carrying aircraft, and it was World War One when aircraft were used on such a large scale for the first time. Skip forward to WW2 and we have produced incredible bomber planes such as the Hawker Hurricane and the Supermarine Spitfire. 1969 saw the first flight of Concorde, a turbo-jet powered supersonic passenger airline enter service. It was developed by the British Aircraft Corporation and Aérospatiale under an Anglo-French treaty. With the advances in technology we are now in the designers' golden age and witness the production of incredible engineering feats such as the Airbus A380, a double deck wide body four engine jet airliner jointly developed by European countries including the UK. From early flight and man's early dreams to spectacular technology today, this is an exciting airborne 90 minute DVD.
