To develop and test new aircraft and weapons systems, is the mission of the U.S. Air Force's test centers. Featured on this DVD are rare and historic films about these facilities. "Ceiling Unlimited" describes the feverish R&D efforts undertaken at Wright Field during WWII. Planes and pilots went higher, flew faster, and farther, thanks to research at Wright.

Edwards Air Force Base, the desert proving ground of the X-planes, is recounted in "Beyond the Horizon". The film, made in the early 1980's, traces the expansion of Edwards from a primitive bombing range, to the world's premiere flight test facility.

As a special bonus, the DVD includes "The XB-70 Story". This extremely rare film profiles the Mach 3.0 capable, Valkerie nuclear bomber. Following a disastrous 1966 mid-air collision involving one of two XB-70 prototypes, the program was curtailed and the film shelved, never to be seen again, until now!

Color and B&W films. 86 minutes.
