There is no accurate way to fully describe a battle that occurs in a time of war. This is the premise of this episode of the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series. Set in the rugged terrain of the Korean peninsula, this video from the National Archives and Records Administration compares a news bulletin from a daily paper to the actual fire-power versus manpower fight between the Infantry, Artillery Armor and Army Aviation and the Communists.

Flight [electronic resource]

As early as the 1500s, we were dreaming of flight - that's when Leonardo da Vinci tried to build his flying machine. Unfortunately, his "Ornithopter" didn't work, and indeed, the airplanes of today do not have flapping wings! This program charts the history of manned flight - from the kite made by the now-famous Wright brothers, which became the forerunner of the flying machine, to today's commercial planes that can top 800 kmph. What is it that makes our current planes fly 12 times faster? Advances in aviation led to the Airbus A380, the largest passenger plane in the world, as well as to the scramjet built by NASA. So what will be the next quirky discovery for flight?
