Combat Aircraft of WWII
In 1903, the Wright brothers invented the airplane, and that event changed the rules of war forever. From war to war, technology has improved step-by-step in an effort to achieve the ultimate aerial war machine. Pacific Media’s “Combat Aircraft” follows the history of the aerial assault vehicle from the creation of the aeroplane to its militarization during World War I and the Russian Revolution. Viewers learn that it was the Spanish Civil War that served as the testing ground for the German airplanes of the Third Reich in the lead-up to the Second World War. Through effective narration and incredible archival footage (including many never-before-seen sequences), this remarkable television series gives viewers a fresh look at the role played by the airplane in combat.
