This documentary, made in collaboration with Air&Space Smithsonian magazine, explores the rapid-growth era in aviation history, when forward-thinking designers and entrepreneurs like William Boeing, Donald W. Douglas, and John K. Northrop were quickly turning the ambitious experiment of flight into lucrative manufacturing businesses.
