According to the U. S. Federal Reserve, the country's central bank, 5.4% is how much America's industrial production dropped in March as factories stopped operating. Manufacturing fell by 6.3% as cutbacks were made in areas like car production, auto parts, manufacturing and furniture making. The last time these numbers decreased by this much in a month. The year was 1946. World War two had just ended. Industries were shutting down their production of war effort materials in transitioning to making consumer products again. 74 years later, it's the Corona virus pandemic that's closed factories. No one knows yet how long it'll take to get industry running the way it was before Cove in 19 entered America. According to John Hopkins University, more than two million Corona virus cases have been confirmed worldwide. Over 610,000 of them are in the United States. And while there's still a lot the doctors don't know about the disease, a new study suggests that people might be most likely to infect others before the carriers even show symptoms themselves. This was published Wednesday in the journal Nature Medicine, but the study relied on patients memories of when they first started showing symptoms, so it might not be entirely accurate. Still, a growing amount of research indicates that people who feel healthy are helping spread Corona virus, So the U. S government's recommending that healthy people keep their faces covered whenever they leave the house. 2020 is an election year not just for the United States but for numerous countries on every inhabited continent. South Korea is one of them, and it's giving us a sense of how other elections may look in these strange and virulent times. This is what an election during a pandemic looks like. This is South Korea, the parliamentary elections, and as you are coming into the polling station, you have your temperature taken. You are told that you cannot stand less than one meter apart to try and keep some distance A CZ. You come up here, you are given hand sanitizer. Everybody has to sanitize their hands and then just before you enter into the polling station, itself. You are giving disposable gloves to put on and only then you are allowed inside to vote. Now when it comes to masks, this is South Korea. Everybody is automatically wherein the mask and has been for weeks anyway. Now this is what we are looking at this point, this is being replicated around the country. There's more than 14,000 polling stations. They will be disinfected throughout the day, we are told, and this is really being seen as a referendum off President Moon Jae in and his ruling party's dealing with the Corona virus crisis. Now his approval rating has increased in recent weeks, as has his parties, and there is certainly being sent overseas praise for what? The way that they have dealt with this crisis. But it's interesting because it's it's almost the voting itself. The fact the election is taking place that is more important from an international that point of view than who wins the fact that they are able to do this and there will be countries around the world looking at this to see if they are able to replicate the same now. There was some concern that turnout might be low. Maybe people would be too worried about coming to a polling station where other people were. That is clearly not being the case. Friday and Saturday of last week was when early voting took place and there was a record turnout. Over 26% of the electric voted early, and the final turnout vote we have seen is the highest in well over 20 years. Paul Hancocks, CNN, Seoul, You Second trivia. What or who were Newport stopped with bad clothing store founders? British battleships Triple Crown winners for World War One aircraft? These were all aircraft that flew in the First World War, engaging in the first dog bites of aerial combat. The stop with Camel was one of the most famous fighter planes of World War One. And to give you a sense of how dangerous flying was in 1917 the Smithsonian says almost as many pilots died in accidents involving the soft with camel as they didn't combat with the machine. Just training to fly back in World War was incredibly dangerous, and that's before you factor in the threat of other pilots who were trying to shoot you down. But it offered an unparalleled, thrilling adventure When flying was new, Dog fights were breaking out in the skies over Europe, and those who shot down at least five enemy aircraft became the world's first flying aces. So for today's virtual getaway, we're visiting an aerodrome. An old school airport in New York who's runway is a field. The aircraft was a brand new invention world one you know, just 10 years or so after the Wright brothers first flew. At first, I think the armies of Europe didn't really know what to do with the airplane. But it very quickly found a very important role and aircraft production training of pilots l skyrocketed very quickly. It was a brand new way of fighting. Having war machines that operated within the air added 1/3 dimension to the battlefield, and they were just learning how to do it. And so pilots were throwing bombs out of the cockpit, and they were carrying pistols and rifles in the cockpit. Or they would have an observer and a secondary cockpit who had a pistol or a rifle, and they would be trading rounds with other airplanes. Wait, a respect for the young men who flew really primitive, elemental airplanes, often with only a few weeks training. I can't imagine being 17 year old kid jumping in one of these airplanes and then being thrown into combat versus you know, another guy who's probably another 17 year old kid scared out of his mind. He's trying to kill him. I think on the one hand they were terrified because they were young. They were fresh when they came to the front lines with unit, you know, they maybe had a maximum of 20 hours of flying time. They just weren't that experienced old run the carriage. Rome is the only really time machine I've ever seen anywhere in the world, you know. You step across the covered bridge here. It's just like it was back in the day. The machines, you know, the people, that the atmosphere, it's all so different from everyday hustle and bustle. And, you know, most people I have hundreds of airplanes fire over their heads all day long. They never even look up here. You can't help but look up. Everything nowadays is very much Elektronik. It's very much you're just a systems manager, you know, flying on autopilot on dhe. It's not as visceral. It's not literally in your face when you're sitting in a spat seven over whatever from war flying that it's true wind in your face flying here. It'll make you believe in Airplane is millionaire plane. Unless it flies so way we'll do everything we can to keep them going. Always fix it. Little things may go. Keep it all in the air. It's very much living history. It's very much history that you can't get anywhere else because it is in your face, literally cure it. See it, smell it wants. And that's a totally different experience, Mark Hauser says. When he was 19 years old, he decided to overcome his fear of heights by skydiving, and he just became the Guinness world record holder for performing the first skydive into the jet stream. To do that, he used a hot air balloon to travel more than 4.5 miles up. The high winds and the cold put out the balloons flame, so it wasn't just about setting the record. It was about making sure his two assistants got back down safely. All of them did. That made finding a firm footing, a feat to defeat fear by putting his best foot forward, finding a way to foot the bill and stepping out where angels fear to tread. What a fine feet turn.
