Pioneers in Aviation: The Race to the Moon

 
  

Pioneers in Aviation captures every significant aviation event, from the Wright Brothers' first flight at Kitty Hawk and the birth of the airlines to the breathtaking culmination of the Apollo moon landing. The program employs recently restored historical footage from the Boeing, Douglas, McDonnell and North American Aviation film archives to profile four legendary aviation pioneers. The three-part documentary series weaves the stories of William Boeing, Donald Douglas, Dutch Kindelberger and James McDonnell together with commentary from some of the United States' foremost aviation scholars.
