Editorial Reviews

Filmed in Russia, the United States, Japan, China, Italy, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Great Britain and Sweden, Wings Over the World pulls together a series of mammoth proportions. Containing much previously unseen footage from around the world, each hour long documentary tells the story of 20th century flight as seen through the eyes of those who were boys at the time of the Wright brothers memorable first flight - boys who grew into the men who built world aviation.

While Donald Douglas rose to prominence as a truly great aircraft designer and builder, James S. McDonnell struggled in the background. With the onset of World War II McDonnell, made his first foothold in aviation, working for Douglas on the DC3. In the ensuing years Douglas became bankrupt and James S. McDonnell saved the company. It became one of the giants of world aviation, later to merge with another US giant: Boeing.

3.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE!! Not the ORIGINAL VERSION May 3, 2012
This is a WONDERFUL series, but be aware this is not the ORIGINAL version. This is the MILLENNIUM version (1999), with new footage and, obviously, original footage edited out. THAT is the big disappointment! I wanted the original version as it was first broadcast. I was quite disappointed that I was not made aware of this before I made the purchase. Amazon should have had someone check this out (or, at least, done some research), as with all products. That being said, it's still one of the best aviation series available. On a good note, Richard Todd does the narration for the new footage, as he did in the first edition. But, I must continue the search...

Also, this does NOT run 60 minutes, it is 51 minutes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Selling Price Ridiculously High April 9, 2013
Verified Purchase
This DVD should be selling for 50% of the price paid. That's why there are only three stars. It's way over priced. This opinion goes for the entire series.
