Subjects covered include the early attempts to arm aircraft, the Zeppelin raids, the appearance of fighter 'aces', the early employment of carrier-based aircraft, the development of the heavy bomber and of night flying, and the creation of the Royal Air Force - the world's first independent air arm - in 1918.
