The Warplane has evolved over nearly a century to become what it is today. This is the story of how - through life-and-death necessity, invention, ingenuity and sheer hard work that technology evolved. WARPLANE is not a history of every plane but rather a look at the major stepping stones that changed military aviation.

Saisons & épisodes Les résumés de tous les épisodes de Warplanes

S01E00 delete me 00/00/0000 The jet engine was a defining piece of mid 20th century technology that led to revolutionary change in aerial combat. It blurred the lines of distinction between the roles of fighters, bombers, and attack helicopters. Huge risks were taken by designers, test pilots and combat air crews to put these jets in motion. Within 66 years of Orville Wright's historic flight, pilots were reaching the final frontier - space. Aviators could now look down on the birthplace of flight - Kitty Hawk, North Carolina - from the moon while they were watched from Earth on live television. Warfare would never be the same again.
S01E01 Airplane To Air Force 00/00/0000 Aerial combat technology has developed rapidly and definitively. War planes were just as vital over the trenches of France in 1914 as they were over the deserts of the Middle East in 2003.
S01E02 Air Force To Air Power 00/00/0000 As the military importance of warplanes grew during WWII, so did demand on its bomb delivery capacity. Dramatically improved aerodynamics led to more sophisticated weapons and communication systems.
S01E03 Jet Age 00/00/0000 The jet engine was a defining piece of mid 20th century technology that blurred the distinction between the roles of fighters, bombers, and attack helicopters. Warfare would never be the same again.
S01E04 The Age Of Stealth 00/00/0000 The latest warplane, the F-22 Raptor, can fly for long periods, break the speed of sound, strike and be gone in a second. Almost invisible to radar, it promises a stealthy victory without casualties.
