Megafactories Aviation Wonders
the world of Megafactories that focuses on the amazing world of aviation
wonders. Ever wondered where these giants of the skies are built than
look no further than this National Geographic Special which takes the
viewer behind the scenes. From interviews to actual footage inside
hidden compartments not available to the public, this documentary is a
gold pass to the viewer.
highlight for me was seeing the Airbus A380 which is a mega plane and is
the heaviest passenger plane in existence. In essence, it's almost twice
the size of a Boeing and this documentary takes the viewer on a detailed
journey of its creation and its first maiden flight. Inside the A380, it
looks like a first class Hotel, however I know for a fact that I would
not want to be the first person on it when it takes off.
the Airbus A380, there are another two episodes that include the Boeing
747 and the Learjet. The Boeing 747 has been dubbed the Queen of the
Skies and was first flown commercially in 1970. From here, this
documentary goes into the development of this plane and how it has
changed over the years to become one of the most famous of aircrafts.
Then we have
the Learjet, a private commercial jet used by both millionaires and the
military to get places very fast. Through interviews with engineers,
aviation experts and pilots, this insightful collection helps explain
how these aviation wonders were created in laymen terms so nothing
becomes too complex to convoluted.
watching this three part documentary, it left me quite amazed at the
technology used to create these amazing manmade flying machines. The
detail inside these crafts is unparalleled as is the technology that
helps make them fly. Beautifully presented on DVD, National Geographic
should be commended on another outstanding documentaries series.
