AIRCRAFT (Color, 1990, 48 Minutes)
A history of the development of aircraft itself as a device, a machine constantly developing in design, from the primitive but effective wing-warping devices of the kite-like Wright Flyer to the fly-by-wire controls of the composite-constructed X-29 forward-swept wing X-Plane on the one hand, and the new wave of Rutan kit planes that revolutionized personal aviation and aircraft design on the other, culminating in the preparations for the historical Rutan Model 76 Voyager flight, the first aircraft to fly around the world without stopping or refueling.

COLE PALEN'S FLYING CIRCUS (Color, 1987, 52 Minutes)
The unlikely and charming story of Cole Palen and the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome he founded, a living museum that restores, maintains and flies authentic aircraft from the dawn of flight to 1925, serviced by multiple examples of roadworthy antique automobiles and other vehicles, located in Red Hook, New York, where weekend airshows reenacting such historic moments as the last dogfight of The Red Baron are performed.
