Show Synopsis

Concorde: The Supersonic Race Relive the fascinating and flawed history of the Concorde, from its very first flight to the plane’s final journey in 2003. International aviation experts, pilots and engineers discuss this marvel of engineering, and remember the fierce battle between the US, USSR and the Anglo-French to create the world’s first supersonic civilian plane. What was it like to fly at twice the speed of sound? What led to the iconic Concorde’s demise? And what of NASA’s plans to develop supersonic flight for the future? Sound barriers are breeched and history re-examined in this stimulating documentary about the epic ‘White Bird’.

Jumbo: The Plane That Changed The World With its distinctive hump it's the most recognisable airliner flying. But the plane that gave us twin aisles, overhead lockers and mass air travel has a secret history... One that nearly destroyed Boeing. This is the remarkable untold story of the jumbo jet (told by the man who designed it, Joe Sutter).
