"This was a great documentary and well spent money. It is a very informative and intresting DVD and will give you some great insight and knowledge of early aircraft as well as an overview of where aviation is headed. You will see Fighters as well as old bombers such as the B-17 and F-111. It is only in 2 channel stereo but the sound is pretty good as is the video. The only down side is that it doesn't cover all of the great planes such as the B1 which is only mentioned once even though its picture made it to the back cover of one of the cases.For the money it is a must for any military aircraft lover. I will watch it several times !Two thumbs up from a private pilot."

"There's some good material in here, more appealing possibly to the causal aviation enthusiast than a real aviation enthusiast. A tour de force in stretching a small amount of aircraft footage into a feature length DVD - don't expect extended sequences of ground or aerial manoeuvres. Frequent interjections by the narrator talking over nothing more that a title page for tens of seconds gives the impression of padding the material out, and I think this would be a correct view since there is precious little information imparted in these padding sequences. The 'which is the best' trump card approach really wouldn't I believe appeal to a true aviation enthusiast - which is the best fighter aircraft for example exercises a rather purile discussion - if you're really into aircraft this DVD set is gloss with no substance."
