Dylon Rockwell, an engineer at The Boeing Company, explains airfoils on airplane wings and helicopter rotor blades and describes the V-22, a vehicle that can fly as an airplane or a helicopter, in this video from WGBH and The Documentary Group. As a child, Rockwell was attracted to things that flew. With the positive influence of his uncle, a pilot, he grew up thinking that he could do anything. Rockwell worked on the V-22 program, which has revolutionized search-and-rescue operations to help save lives. He believes that you don’t have to be a genius to be an engineer—you just need the curiosity to figure out how things work. This resource is part of the Aerospace Engineering collection.
