Mighty Planes Full Episode Guide

  • Russia's mighty Ilyushin 76 is built military-tough to deliver heavy-duty cargo around the world, but her maiden voyage into the Arctic Circle proves to be a challenge. Follow her attempt to airlift a fleet of trucks and trailers to the Baffinland Iron Mines in a remote part of Nunavut, Canada. It's a mission no other plane can pull off, and the Arctic will throw everything it has at the Ilyushin, from blinding polar storms to icy runways.

  • Formula E auto racing is redefining motorsport, but AirBridgeCargo's 747-8F is poised to take the checkered flag. See her fly from China to Russia to England in a race against the clock to deliver a fleet of electric-powered race cars in time for the next race. Intensifying matters for the pilots and loading crew: a dangerous cargo of potentially explosive lithium-ion batteries and a typhoon threatening to hit Hong Kong before they even take off.

  • The Stargazer L-1011 is a unique kind of storm chaser, able to shoot NASA weather satellites into space from 39,000 feet in the air. See how this onetime Air Canada jetliner was converted to carry a very different kind of passenger: the Pegasus XL rocket, which launches satellites designed to detect the speed and intensity of hurricanes. Follow the Stargazer on her latest mission, one plagued by bad weather, mechanical issues, and launch delays.

  • Canada's northwest territories are rich in gold and diamonds, but running a mining operation in extreme Arctic conditions with very few roads can be tremendously challenging. Enter the Twin Otter, the rugged aircraft of choice in remote Canadian communities. Powered by two turboprop engines, the Twin Otter maneuvers like a bird and is capable of landing just about anywhere-on land, sea, and snow. Follow this mighty plane as she handles icy skies and frozen-lake runways on a series of critical missions.

  • The Luftwaffe's A400M Atlas is able to move massive cargo, provide medical support, and bring the fight to the enemy. Enter its manufacturing facility in Seville, Spain to get an inside look at how this state-of-the-art aircraft is built for action. Whether transporting a three-ton tactical helicopter, whisking away paratroopers on a dangerous training mission in the German countryside, or delivering live cargo to Italy, the A400M is the future of military transport.

  • The C-2 Greyhound is a humble, heavy-duty workhorse for the U.S. Navy, operating on frantic flight decks and delivering over 1,000 tons of cargo to aircraft carriers around the world. It's a tough plane to fly and even tougher to ground. In this episode, we follow four student pilots training to land this beast in the middle of the ocean. It's the biggest test of their lives. It's taken them three years of flight school to get to this point, and if they fail, their dreams of joining the fleet may never come true.

  • These are the mightiest of mighty planes - aviation€™s biggest, fastest, strongest, and most innovative aircraft on the planet. Join us as we revisit massive marvels like the A380, supersonic wonders like the Blue Angels, and hospitals in the sky like the Orbis DC-10. From game changers to heavy lifters to frontier-busters, these are the planes that have transformed the way we fly, fight, conduct science, and save lives.

  • She€™s the €œWorkhorse of the North,€ powering through the vast Arctic region, where conditions can turn deadly in seconds. Nolinor Aviation€™s 737-200 C is a combination cargo and passenger aircraft, delivering essential food, equipment, and workers to Meadowbank, the coldest mine on Earth. The gold mine depends on this super hauler four times a week, but common temperatures of minus 50 degrees often wreak havoc on the aircraft and her missions. Follow her on a typical job, which poses challenges that are anything but routine.

  • The NASA Super Guppy is a jerry-rigged wonder, built from parts of 1950s planes. But her cargo is anything but retro. She has hauled vital aerospace hardware across the country in her 50+ years of service, including parts of Apollo, the Hubble Space Telescope, and Skylab. Now, after being grounded for eight months for major upgrades and maintenance, she and her dedicated crew are back on the job, picking up and delivering a multi-million-dollar payload on a challenging three-day mission.

  • When lives are in peril on Canada€™s West Coast, the search and rescue plane everyone counts on is the CC-115 Buffalo. This Canadian Air Force legend can turn on a dime inside the dangerously boxed valleys of British Columbia, and take off and land on rugged terrain as short as a soccer field. Because the Buffalo responds to over 200 emergency calls every year, training the crew is vital to success. Follow the Buffalo crew on two training exercises: saving sailors in a sinking vessel at sea and searching for a missing aircraft.

  • The T-38 Talon is a twin-engine, two-seat, supersonic marvel. It climbs 30,000 feet per minute, flies at a speed of 858 miles per hour, and rolls up to 300 degrees per second. If you can fly the T-38 with its unimaginable G-forces, you can fly just about anything. Go on a high-altitude mission in the greatest fighter jet trainer in the world and join three student NATO pilots who push the T-38 - and themselves - to the limit.

  • It€™s been called one of the greatest submarine hunters in the world, and it€™s still one of Canada€™s best kept secrets: the CP-140 Aurora. This Cold War legend remains a state-of-the-art spymaster, flying 17 hours straight to find ISIS targets in Iraq or exposing illegal traffickers around the globe. The Aurora must prove it still has the right stuff in an exercise to search for a mock submarine hiding in the Georgia Straight - but her flight crew finds some unexpected obstacles.
