    Pioneers In Aviation: The Race to the Moon [#103] The Race to the Moon Documents the era of the 1950s and 1960s, as post-war America finds itself locked in an ideological struggle with the Soviet Union-an adversary whose philosophy promised the destruction of capitalism. In 1957, the Soviet launch of Sputnik suddenly shifted the Cold War battlefield to space and heralded the decade-long Race to the Moon. As did his predecessors, President Kennedy turns to the captains of his Aviation Industry-now in the autumn of their years-with the century's greatest aerospace challenge. Highlights include:
    * Newly discovered footage documenting President Kennedy's 1963 visit to McDonnell Aircraft in St. Louis, in celebration of the Mercury Space Program.
    * Emotionally charged footage of Astronaut John Glenn's triumphant return to McDonnell Aircraft, after orbiting the Earth- to share his achievement with "Mr. Mac" and his employees.
    * Photographs of the unknown 19-year-old Marilyn Monroe, modeling the cabin features of the new Douglas DC-6.
    * Boeing Test Pilot Tex Johnston's legendary barrel-roll of the "Dash-8 0"-prototype of the Boeing 707-over Lake Washington during the 1955 Seattle Gold Cup Races.
