Synopsis

The series conclusion traces the history of aircraft carriers, "floating fortresses," says narrator Stacy Keach, that have become "the world's new power brokers." The father of the aircraft carrier: pilot and bicycle racer Glenn Curtis, who first approached the Navy with the idea in 1910. The biggest problem---getting planes to land safely on them---took some 20 years to solve, as seen here in British and American footage.
