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 three, Age of Flight: Rolling Thunder documents the Vietnam War air combat campaign, which was launched February 24, 1965, and lasted until the end of October 1968. This film focuses on how aerial bombing by U.S. Air Force and Navy aircraft helped immobilize enemy forces and how Vietnam provided the biggest airlift in history. Other titles in the Age of Flight series are, Age of Flight: Mig Alley, Age of Flight: Choppers, Age of Flight: Dawn of the Jet Age, Age of Flight: X-Planes, Age of Flight: Jets - The New Generation, Age of Flight: Lift Off to Space, Age of Flight: Aces, Age of Flight: Kitty Hawk, Age of Flight: The Story of Naval Power, Age of Flight: Modern Warplanes, and Age of Flight: Bombers.
