Jet engines debuted in the waning days of World War II, as a stunning new fighter plane arrived too late to help the Nazi cause. Since then, they have revolutionized transportation and brought the world closer together. This episode of Modern Marvels uses extensive footage, computer animation, and interviews with pilots, scientists, and industry insiders to tell the powerful story of jet engines. From the secret Nazi attempts to develop a revolutionary weapon to the Stealth fighter and beyond, the program introduces the men and technology that have pushed the jet ever forward. Visit the famed "Skunkworks" at Lockheed Martin, where America's first jet was developed, and get a behind-the-scenes look at famous jets like the U-2 spy plane and the F-22 fighter. Witness some of aviation's most historic moments, and get a glimpse of what the future holds for this workhorse of the modern world.
