"This DVD is an outstanding documentary of two great leaders in the field of aviation. It is a "must have" for any aviation enthusiast. It should also be of great interest to history buffs."

"Frankly, I had low expectations for this DVD but it's excellent! Being from the Seattle ("Jet City")area, I particularly love the detailed depiction of William Boeing and especially Tex Johnson's famous roll over Lake Washington in the prototype 707. Any aviation nut will love this!"
Informative and Entertaining

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD traces the origins and development of two of the giants of aviation, William Boeing and Donald Douglas and tosses in other vignettes as well. It was a part of my education about the industry that was lacking. Boeing as it turns out had no interest or background in aviation as he grew to manhood involved in the timber business, while Douglas was obsessed with aviation from his teens.

Boeing was badly treated by the politics and politicians of the 1930's which is a story I did not know at all, while Douglas seemed to thrive during those turbulent times. One wonders if the Boeing people had been in a position to handle an order for their B-247 passenger liner from TWA, whether or not we would have ever seen the DC-3.

Probably so, but that and other intriguing issues are raised by this very even handed and entertaining look back at history."
