When World War I began in 1914, the air forces of the opposing nations consisted of handfuls of rickety biplanes. By the war's end, the blueprint of the modern fighter aircraft had emerged. To trace the story of this astonishingly rapid technological revolution, NOVA takes viewers inside The Vintage Aviator, a team of New Zealand-based aviation buffs dedicated to bringing back classic World War One fighters.

Comments about PBS NOVA: First Air War DVD:

A fascinating look at the first "dogfights" when pilots were fighting and learning by the seat of their pants. An excellent companion DVD is Rise of the Drones to see how far the air ware has evolved in 100 years.

Not a Comprehensive Documentary

By Aero Fan

from Arizona

Comments about PBS NOVA: First Air War DVD:

As other reviews here have mentioned, this was a biased "documentary". It discusses in length how the British finally out-engineered the superior German airplanes, but then they fail to compare the German comeback with the Fokker DVII. They also don't do a good comparison of the French planes. I had to research it online to find out that the DVII turned out to be an even more superior plane than what the British had come up with. Very disappointed in NOVA.
