What an incredible documentary discussing the absolutely largest living thing ever known to fly on the face of this Earth under its own power. This documentary is aptly named "Flying Monsters", for not only was this breed of Pterosaur colossal in scope and scale, but it pretty fed on anything got in its path. If you and I were alive back then, some 170 million years ago, we would be a mere snack.
This very educational and entertaining National Geographic documentary examines the investigations by Stanford's best into the aerodynamics and general life and physiological structure of the most prevalent of flying creatures in its day. The film doesn't stick strictly with the largest breed, Quetzalcoatlus, but looks at other flying creatures during the age of the dinosaurs, as well as present day flying animals, and gives us some extrapolations therefrom.
But, when all that is said and done, imagine standing under the wing of a Boeing 737 or 727. The width of those planes' wings was about the wingspan of one of the creatures discussed in this film. If that doesn't put some sense of wonder and amazement in you, I don't know what will.
Great viewing. Check it out.
