FROM KITTY HAWK TO CONCORDE AND BEYOND

1 x 52’ B

On December 17th, 1903, on a clear, cold, frosty morning in North Carolina, Orville Wright got airborne for the very first time in man’s history, in a powered airplane.  It was an event that lit a fuse in man’s technological evolution.  From that moment on there has been a continuous pressure to go further and faster and higher.

Within a little over 20 years men were engaged in aerial combat.  Within 20 years they’d flown across  the Atlantic.  Within 40 years they had broken the sound barrier.  And so it has gone on.  Today, we are looking at the creation of the space plane that can soar effortlessly into the stratosphere.This program tells the story  of that amazing evolution … from Wright Brothers to Space Plane in 100 years.

 


A TIGER'S TALE
1 x 52'

This program is a celebration of one of the most famous bi-planes in the world and features Christopher Reeve and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. Of almost 9000 Tiger Moths built between 1931 and 1945, more than 400 are still flying all round the world.
Originally built as a training aircraft, it has since been used for every kind of aerial work including air taxis, ambulances, crop sprayers and radio controlled bombers; but the Tiger is probably best known as the epitome of the bi-plane, a crowd pleaser at aerobatics displays.
There were no proper drawings for the Tiger, which was developed by Geoffrey de Havilland, a highly prolific designer with over 20 planes to his name.
