Jet Age Fighters

By the end of the Second World War, the age of propeller-driven fighter aircraft was over. THE JET AGE FIGHTERS chronicles the development of jet technology and its impact on the Royal Air Force with three of the force’s most potent Fighters. From the pioneering test flights of the Hawker Hunter of the 1950s, to the development of the world’s first VTOL (Vertical Take Off and Landing), aircraft the Hawker Harrier, including its dramatic role in the Falklands War. In the Ground Attack role, the RAF deployed the Sepecat Jaguar, one of the most sophisticated aircraft of its time. The Pilots talk about what it is like to fly these computerized, mach-speed planes, and dramatic footage from training and combat, shows them in action.
