De­par­ture – Hu­mans seem to be drawn to the idea of fly­ing. This con­cept has been around for over 2,000 years, but it was only un­til the Wright broth­ers’ suc­cess that peo­ple started tak­ing avi­a­tion se­ri­ously. But get­ting some­thing to fly isn’t easy. The avi­a­tion in­dus­try is as much a world of science and en­gi­neer­ing, as it is a vast global trans­porta­tion net­work. This three- part doc­u­men­tary will ex­plore some of the great­est avi­a­tion break­throughs of the cen­tury, while ex­plain­ing how ev­ery­thing works. Are you ready for take- off?
