Warfare changed dramatically with the introduction of airplanes. Nova explores this added dimension and the effect it had on combat in Nova: War From the Air. When the military got wise to the advantages of burgeoning technology, scientists were sought out to design weapons of destruction. The most damaging of these was the bomb, which could be dropped out of a moving airplane. Nova introduces actual war footage when it discusses this advance. The PBS program also looks at the creation of bombs from the ground up. A summary of the strategies behind high-altitude warfare rounds out the presentation.
