Summary
From 1996 to 2001, Boeing and Lockheed Martin produced rival designs and prototypes for the Joint Strike Fighter, a combat plane intended for the 21st century needs of the U.S. Air Force, Navy, and Marines. NOVA was allowed a first-ever inside look at a Department of Defense weapons competition, filming at Lockheed Martin's famous Skunk Works and Boeing's Phantom Works. One of the most difficult and potentially lucrative aeronautical projects ever undertaken--the winner could earn up to $1 trillion over the life of the project--the JSF may well be the last manned fighter built by the United States. The program captures this clandestine world where amazing flying machines are hatched amid freewheeling brainstorming, cost-conscious compromising, and nervous speculation about what the other side has up its sleeve, enlivened by hair-raising moments inside the cockpit, with a pilot's-eye view of prototypes in flight
