Technology Documentary hosted by William Hootkins, published by Discovery Channel broadcasted as part of DC Extreme Machines series in 1997 – English narration
For hundreds of years one of mankind’s oldest and most persistent aspirations was human flight. Today in Reno (Nevada) the most powerful aircraft in the world compete at speeds that can exceed 800 km/h to achieve the award of the world’s fastest race plane.
We will see how they prepare their pilots to win the race and will revisit the beginnings of aviation history with a collection from the early models of the 40s, from the P-51s to modern F-22.
And we see the ultimate flying speed demon SR-71 Blackbird, a plane created by Lockheed Martin to NASA and CIA. The SR-71 regularly flew missions at speeds beyond 2,000 mph (Mach 3) and could survey more than 100,000 square miles of the Earth’s surface per hour from a height of 80,000 feet (15 miles).
This is your ultimate guide to the superplanes.
