Synopsis by Sally Barber

Age of Flight, a 12-volume series, presents a comprehensive history of aviation, from man's earliest attempts to conquer the wild blue yonder to the development of sophisticated experimental crafts and advanced technology. Archival photography and aerial footage illustrate the fascinating stories of the men, women, and events that defined the evolution of flight. Volume four, Age of Flight: Modern Warplanes, documents the progress of the fighter jet with each successive war, from primitive early models to super-powerful high-tech machines. This film also examines the development and use of radar, sonar, and satellites in complex combat strategies.
