8pm - 9pm. "In 1947, American pilot Chuck Yeager climbed into a bizarre experimental aircraft in an attempt to fly faster than the speed of sound. This is the story of the creation of the X-1 aircraft - from its seemingly impossible goal to its extraordinary accomplishment that made history and launched new generations of X planes. It is also the tale of Yeager's come-from-behind journey to break the sound barrier and lead a new generation of test pilots"
