This documentary chronicles the history of aviation, paying particular attention to the contributions of Vought aircraft. Chance Vought and Birdseye Lewis began Lewis and Vought Corporation in 1917, which became Ling-Temco-Vought in 1962. It is currently known as Vought Aircraft Industries, with headquarters in Dallas. Early designs focused on army training planes like the VE-7. The partnership with the military continued after World War I, as Vought developed carrier-based aircraft and bombers such as the F4U Corsair and the SB2U Vindicator used in World War II and the Korean War. Vought was involved with significant aircraft design innovation during these years, implementing lighter, faster engines and metal based frames. In the 1950s, the company would innovate with jet fueled, supersonic aircraft, such as the F8 Crusader used in the Vietnam War.
