Top Flight DVD
Top Flight is a memorable look at the real heroes and heroines of the air. From the nation's first military flights to the moon landing, the program takes students along on some of history's most historic moments of aviation and space travel -- experiencing the sensations of combat, rescue missions, and journeys to outer space. Students' understanding of these events is reinforced by the personal stories of the individuals behind the achievements. From a crusty World War I pilot to a 27-year-old female flight instructor who turns Air Force recruits into pilots, these pioneers and heroes bring to life the impact of aviation technology on our society, giving us an eyewitness account of crucial events in twentieth-century history and a vivid glimpse of some intriguing careers. An engaging media supplement to space science, American history (including state histories of Texas and Florida), technology and society, and career orientation units.
