Engineering Connections Airbus A380

Richard Hammond sets out on a quest to find the amazing Engineering Connections behind the Airbus A380, the largest passenger airliner in history. His journey reveals that this state-of-the-art aircraft owes as much to weapons of war, Mother Nature and household objects as it does to high technology. He discovers that a bicycle pump, a 19th century rocket, an ancient Mongolian bow and an eagle’s wing are all hidden in its secret DNA.
