Tune in to Rocky Mountain PBS at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 14 for Episode 4 of Behind the Wings Season 3 featuring the Learjet and aviation icons of the past and present.

For nearly sixty years the Learjet came to define a new class of luxury airplane – the business jet. Now, the last Learjet ever is being assembled at the Wichita-based production facility in “The Aviation Capital of the World”. Speaking with aviation icons past and present, we get an intimate look at a company that shaped aviation as we know it today. From its record-setting performance achievements to its outsized role in popular culture, the Learjet’s place in history is here to stay, long after the production lines shut down.
