Modern Marvels: Air Shows

Each year, 18 million Americans flock to air shows around the country for a chance to see precision flying, old-fashioned barnstormer showmanship, and antique and modern aircraft.

From the cockpits of the main attractions to the offices of the regulatory agencies charged with keeping spectators safe, Modern Marvels examines the logistics, technology, and high-level skills involved in putting together a modern air show. Discover how ever-evolving technology has allowed pilots to perform stunts that were once thought impossible, and hear from promoters and organizers about the unique challenges that persist during these spectacular, but potentially deadly, events. Finally, travel back in time to 1909 Germany for a look at the world's very first air show.

From air races to wing-walking demonstrations to incredible aerobatic feats, Modern Marvels: Air Shows is the ultimate, behind-the-scenes look at one of America's favorite pastimes.
