Editorial Reviews

Americans have always had a fascination with flight. In 1896, man's first man-made aircraft left the ground... if just for seconds. Over the years followed such headliner successes as the Wright Brothers (1903), Charles Lindbergh (1927), Amelia Earhart (1928), Chuck Yeager (1947) and Neil Armstrong/Buzz Aldrin (1969). By the early 1940s and World War II, it was clear that air power would play a decisive role in winning the struggle. War demands pushed aircraft technology and design ahead at a dizzying pace, quickly going further and faster than ever thought possible and providing a treasure trove of legacy aircraft. A new dream of flight began emerging in the early '60s, beyond the birds and clouds, to visit a world beyond our own. The U.S. and the Soviet Union engaged in a race to the moon, generating huge advances in science, medicine and technology. The Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum (established in 1946), also known as America's Hangar, houses over 300,000 square-feet of aircraft and is the world's most visited museum. It has preserved and displays many of the world's most renowned historic aircraft. From the first airplane, commercial aircraft and spacecraft to take an American into orbit, Smithsonian Channel takes you on a personal tour of the collections of the National Air and Space Museum, chronicling the first century of flight.

America's Hanger is about the National Air and Space Museum. I am a volunteer tour guide (docent) at the museum. Overall I would rate the DVD as "Good". It is becoming out-dated but for the price it is okay. Aspects of the museum shown in the DVD such as the retoration facility and the space shuttle Enterprise are no longer current -- the restoration portion has been moved to the Udvar Hazy Center of the museum and artifacts under restoration change. The Enterprise has moved to New York and has been replaced by the space shuttle Discovery. In other words, the NASM may be a museum but the museum doen't remain static, it has changed and will continue to do so. If you can accept these limitations, the DVD is worth the bargain price.

I have been to the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum in Washington, D.C. several times, but this DVD is a great souvenir of both that museum and the new, larger Air & Space Museum II at Dulles Airport. I may not get to the new museum at Dulles, so this video tour is the next best thing.
