'Planes That Changed the World' tells the fascinating stories of three of the most iconic and influential planes of the last century - the SR-71 Blackbird spyplane, the DC-3 Gooney Bird and the Airbus A380 SuperJumbo. Aircraft that have come to epitomise the perseverance, ingenuity and visionary leadership of the men and women who designed, built and flew them.

Told through the people who made it all happen and combining dramatic re-enactment of first-hand testimony with original archive, we follow every twist and turn of the planes' origins, innovative design and life in service to reveal the stories of passion, of derring-do and of true grit and determination that made our world the way it is today. 

'Planes That Changed the World' reflects our human spirit and proves what we can achieve when we rise to conquer a seemingly impossible challenge.
