Documentary combining archive footage and colour re-enactments to chronicle the desperate race between the Nazis and Allies to create the first jet-powered plane and win the battle for aerial supremacy during World War Two. While Britain's leading engineer Frank Whittle had to struggle against official indifference, Germany's Hans von Ohain had the full backing of his country's war machine : support which eventually helped him build the fearsome Messerschmitt 262.
