Editorial Reviews

The incredible journey of Classic Aviation Films takes you from short flights across a field to the screaming hypersonic edge of space as you tour dramatic moments in the history of flight, in this 6-DVD set. Begin with the Wright Brothers in 1909, then follow a 1924 around-the-globe adventure by plane in Volume 1. American engineering takes center stage in Volume 2 and the training of future aviation support is profiled in Volume 3. Jump to shocking WWII footage of the famous and tragic raid on the Ploesti oil fields by B-24 Liberators in Volume 4. Feel the strain U.S. Air Force test pilots are subjected to in Volume 5. Strap in with Neil Armstrong in Volume 6 as he scrapes the upper edge of the atmosphere in the '50s and '60s with the cutting-edge XF and X-15 rocket planes. From the birth of flight near the ground to its highest accomplishments in near space, enjoy the history of Classic Aviation.

This is a compilation of training films and old b&w films, repeated over and over in the DVDs. Poorly done.
