Richard Hammond reveals the startling engineering connections behind Hong Kong's Ocean Airport, one of the busiest and biggest in the world, sited on a specially constructed island. The world's largest construction project drew inspiration from a 13th-Century Arab irrigation machine, a WWII bomber, car suspension, a bizarre Cold War spy device and a brass band, and resulted in the new gateway to Asia.
