This category contains documentaries and video materials that focus on the various types of aircrafts and aircraft related stories. Learn about their history, development through time and also their success and failure stories capable of inspiring, causing fear and, above all, admiration for these machines and people that stand behind them.
Many ages ago, humans first gazed upon the skies and noticed that it was the domain ruled by a peculiar kind of creatures. The thing that they all had in common, we noticed, were the things giving them the ability to elevate themselves, a pair of wings. Our fascination with the ability to fly has set us on a path of discovery of the scientific principles behind it, and it fueled our ever growing desire to master that ability ourselves.
That resulted in the birth of a specific branch of science or art, if you will, dealing with the study, design and manufacturing of air flight capable machines, and the techniques of operating them called aeronautics. Aviation is nothing more than putting in practice the principals of aeronautics.
Enjoy the materials that we provided for you and discover a range of outcomes from constructing, operating, exploiting and even abusing the extraordinary abilities that these marvelous machines provide.
You will discover a wide specter of incredible stories from the airplanes being used to release chemicals into the atmosphere and altering the weather, to the spectacular maneuver of the airplane on Air Transat flight 236, preventing an enormous tragedy. Watch the documentary on an aviation gem called the Boeing, and learn about its history, development and gain profound knowledge on the topic through inspection of never before seen footage. Further on, see what happens when a fatal maintenance error occurs and because of it, a cockpit window falls out of place at an altitude of 30, 000 feet.
Bare witness the incredible stories of the heroes and the villains of the skies. Find out what key roles the airplanes have had since the very first ones took off to the vast spaces above us. Discover the extraordinary stories of the people responsible for the breakthroughs in the relevant fields of science and improving the overall safety and the quality of the flights.

On 10 June 1990, on British Airways Flight 5390, the cockpit window blew out, blowing the captain partially through the hole. A member of the cabin crew clung to the pilot's legs as the co-pilot completed an emergency landing. The captain was found to be still alive after being outside the cockpit for 21 minutes. The blow out was caused by a maintenance worker installing incorrectly-sized bolts during maintenance work.

"This documentary takes an in depth look at the phenomena of releasing chemicals into the atmosphere in order to in some way alter the weather on the planet. Although widely refute by politicians around the world there is a growing body of evidence that this is indeed happening.Furthermore it is having a catastrophic affect upon the rest of the planetary resources. Documentarytube released “What in the World are they Spraying” and this has seen considerable interest from many sources and this revealing documentary opens the subject even further.Thousands of people are noting that the planet’s weather is dramatically changing and we can all witness the jet like vapour trails left behind aircraft. The general consensus is that these represent the reality of chemtrail/geo-engineering programs to adjust the weather and subsequently play into the hands of those corporations which will benefit and seek to control resource and mankind.The documentary investigates links between the trails and severe weather across the planet. Political agendas exist too ensure these programmes continue in their destructive way…some corporation will benefit at the detriment of many. Evidence is widespread and pointing directly to geo-engineering being used to control the weather.Aerosols are sprayed into our sky and are used in conjunction with other mechanisms to modify our weather. The majority of geo-engineers maintain that their models are only designed to combat the affects of global warming but it is now further evident this control can convey massive amount of fiscal and political power into the clutches of the few in power.Control of the weather is like a Midas touch to those who wield the power…..the resultant will be further wealth where it is not needed to the detriment of millions of poor and needy around the world…this should not be allowed to continue.You can watch our other valid documentary “What in the world are they Spraying” by clicking this link.Further information on Chem Trails can be found here http://educate-yourself.org/ct/"

"GREAT PLANES appraises The Boeing 747 – an aviation marvel that stirred the uprising in the passenger air transport segment.This documentary provides us with never before seen footage of the evolution of the classic 747 models, while giving us insights on Jet-airline technology, creation of the world’s first jumbo jet and opening our minds to the requirements to survive in this highly competitive market!The amazing feat of the creation of the largest twin-engine airplane has been achieved by the astonishing streamlined integration of two forces which mark man’s entry into the modern world – Computer and the airplane!The documentary further explores how this remarkable achievement in the aviation industry was shaped by the people and certain event such as making a key change in the traditional way of production – complete transformation from digital preassembly directly to a production model enabling this marvel to generate more thrust than the combined power of eight engines of a B-52 bomber plane and allowing 300 passengers to be carried at an astounding speed which is nearly 84% of the speed of sound.Truly remarkable indeed!"
