The Jet Pioneer. 'Whittle' and 'jet' are almost synonyms. Frank Whittle was a brilliant pilot, but it was as a mathematician and engineer that he truly excelled. He was someone who saw potential for development using innovation and elegant simplicity, where others only saw improvement by further complication. Sadly the development of his jet engine was slowed by people with less imagination. Ultimately his contribution to aero engineering and the implications for changing how the world functioned, was immense.

This richly illustrated DVD is an extended version of the documentary made for the History Channel and includes a wealth of information, interviews and archive footage.

Duration 93 mins.

Eric Brown - A pilot's story. The title says it all. An 80 minute DVD is barely able to do justice to the fascinating story of a man who had an extraordinary life. Winkle contributed so much to the development of aviation in general, and naval aviation in particular, in the 20th century. He holds numerous 'firsts', is credited with over 2400 carrier landings (no one else has come close) and his record of 487 different types of aircraft flown will never be broken.
