Age of Stealth (Episode #104)

KQED 9: Tue, Nov 3, 2009 -- 9:00 PM

The final hour examines the computer age avionics and stealth planes that are all but invisible to the enemy eyes. Over the trenches of World War I, planes had been indispensable. Since that time, developers have worked endlessly to make planes harder to spot and shoot down. The program explores the computer technology and new materials that have not only transformed air combat, but also positioned the world's most advanced air forces for a future where in-cockpit pilots may no longer be necessary.

Jet Age (Episode #103)

KQED World: Sun, Nov 1, 2009 -- 5:00 AM

Part 3 examines the vital arms race and the invention of the jet engine. In the later days of World War II, Britain and Germany feverishly advanced early dreams of a jet airplane that would revolutionize existing airplane roles and create an entirely new generation of mission-specific machines. The program profiles the designers, test pilots and combat crews who took huge risks to push the boundaries of sound and space.
