Battle of the X-Planes

If you’ve ever been bitten by the airplane bug (I have a BS in aeronautical engineering), then you need to watch Battle of the X-Planes. It premiered on most PBS stations last night. The Nova documentary follows the Joint Strike Fighter competition between Boeing and Lockheed-Martin. Even if you haven’t been bitten by the bug, you may be interested in how the Department of Defense goes about spending a couple of hundred billion dollars.
