Synopsis by Kathryn Tamms
Military weapons of the air have experienced amazing evolutionary transformations since the bi-planes of World War II, as technology has advanced to enable us to create increasingly sophisticated and deadly agents of war. In this video, one of a three-part A&E series on air weaponry, host George C. Scott explores the development of the helicopter, following its history from a World War II "egg beater" to a Gulf War "flying tank." Discover more about these vital weapons of war as well as the pilots who fly them.
