If you are one of those vintage aviation fans who remembers with misty-eyed fondness the Discovery Channel of the 1980s/90s, and their famous television series Wings, then you are in for a treat! The company which produced most of the content for those shows, Wingspan TV, has a worthy successor in AeroCinema. AeroCinema is doubtless to become a favorite with all warbird and aviation history enthusiasts. The web-based tv channel provides on-demand streaming of aviation-only video for television, computers and mobile devices. On your own schedule, you can enjoy fascinating feature films, documentaries, state-of-the-art animation, and first-person accounts from the combat veterans, test pilots, designers, and engineers who made aviation history.
You can try out a two week subscription for free, but for a minimal subscription fee of US$5.95 a month, or discounted at US$59.95 a year, you will have access to a vast aviation history library of rich detail.
A subscription to AeroCinema opens access to content such as:
The Missing Century Fighter XF-108—the Rapier. In the minds of American military planners, the promise of intercepting Russian bombers far before they reached the American heartland was simply too appealing to ignore. And so is this story of the birth of the long-range Mach 3 “Rapier.”
The Deadly Twins. Britain, looking for an antidote to the deadly Zeppelins in WWI, creates a bizarre looking aircraft— the Blackburn TB, a Zwilling design welding the fuselages of two planes together. In WWII, the U.S. and Germany, looking to make the most of their precious wartime resources, would follow suit with their own Deadly Twins.
Major General Fred Ascani, USAF, deputy commander of the XB-70 Valkyrie project, sharing his unique insight into that program.
Captain Eric Brown, RN—who tested a record 487 individual aircraft types, and made 2,407 arrested carrier landings, more than anyone in history—discussing his many extraordinary adventures.
AeroCinema is easy to set up, affordable, and—based on subscriber feedback—very addicting. If you’re an aviation lover, AeroCinema was created for you! Check it out now with a <free 14-day trial subscription>.
