Synopsis: An extraordinary history of the United States' top secret military aircraft from WWII to the Gulf War and the missions they flew. Since 1941 the United States has produced a series of 'black' aeroplanes - planes developed, tested, and operated in deep secrecy. Years, even a decade or more, would pass before their existence was made public. The impact of these 'Dark Eagles' has been profound. The first introduced America to the jet age. The next revolutionised the way intelligence was gathered. Another pushed aviation technology to its farthest limits. This is the extraordinary history of the Top Secret U.S. aircraft programmes: including the first, XP-59A Airacomet, the famous U-2, the stealthy F-177A, and so many more.
