More than man's best friend. A mate to the entire community. It's the film that captivated cinema audiences across the nation and became an instant Aussie classic. Funny, moving and a total charmer, Red dog is the incredible true story of the wandering, dust-covered Kelpie who hitched his way to the mining town of Dampier and into the hearts of each and every one of its residents. Critics gave this all-ages hit movie " 4 stars", hailing it "wonderful" and a "crowd pleaser" that "should not be missed!" Featuring a fabulous cast including Josh Lucas (Sweet home Alabama), Rachael Taylor (Transformers) and, in his last film, a memorable cameo from Bill Hunter (The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the desert).

The coming of the jets( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The jet has brought revolutionary changes to the way we see the world. But as so often with technological advances, the early inventions came from military demands. Jets were flying in combat before the end of the Second World War. Yet early types like the Messerschmitt Me 262 and Lockheed P-80 Shooting Star could barely reach speeds of 550 miles per hour, well below that of sound. If the Wright brothers' epic first flight off Kill Devil Hill, North Carolina, in 1903 is aviation's greatest milestone, the development of the jet aircraft will surely be the next

For more than 40 years after 1945, the world was dominated by confrontation between two major power blocks, led by the United States and the Soviet Union.

Because of the job, the two are forced to spend many hours together alone in the wild.

The bomber as war winner?( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One aspect of the Second World War emphasized its totality above any other. This was strategic bombing, especially the German campaign against Britain, the Anglo-U.S. bombing of Germany, and the American air offensive against mainland Japan. These bombing campaigns put civilians in the firing line to an extent that had never been experienced in previous wars. The morality of this has been a subject of often bitter debate ever since
Law enforcement from the air( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aircraft's domination of the air above us gives it the ability to be an all-seeing eye.

But most of us witness the aircraft's all-seeing eye at very much lower level and in the form of the police helicopter patrolling over cities and highways

Korea to the Gulf War( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Second World War proved not to be the war to end all wars, and air power has had plenty of opportunity to demonstrate its strengths and weaknesses in the numerous conflicts which have so troubled the post 1945 world. First out, air power played a major part in the 45 years of cold war between the Capitalistic and Democratic West and the Communist Eastern bloc, with a manned bomber providing one-arm of the nuclear triad. The aircraft of both sides constantly probed each others airspace to test the defenses. And this period also saw conflicts in Korea, Vietnam, and the Persian Gulf, with the accompanying expansion of aerial operations
