Description
As part of a rapid deployment package, the Navy pilot projects U.S. military air power anywhere...any time. Flying off a moving air base, day or night, in all weather, it is the most demanding job in aviation. It is the cat launch, the combat mission and recovery. Yet to ensure the success of the total mission, every pilot must be in perfect sync with his air wing. There is no margin for error. Experience the intense pressure of the carrier flight deck. And see first hand why the pilots who fly the F/A-18 Hornet, F-14 Tomcat and A-6 Intruder are called the best of the best. Using real-time mission profiles and live cockpit audio, Frontline Pilots is the ground-breaking new military-aviation series that puts views on the flight line.

Climb into the cockpit of the formidable F-111, the scud-hunting F-15E, the F-117A Stealth and see what it takes to make the hit.

Description
For the pilot who goes air-to-air, precise situational awareness and split-second tactical response translates into pure advantage. Once radar confirms a hostile, it's full afterburner to the merge with guided AIM missiles armed and ready to lock on. The battle is won or lost in a matter of seconds...usually beyond visual range. Yet air superiority always comes down to one factor...pilot skill. The mission is to own the sky. Get the air combat experience with the pilots of the F-15C, F-14, F-16 and F-18 as they press for the decisive edge. Using real-time mission profiles and live cockpit audio, Frontline Pilots is the ground-breaking new military-aviation series that puts views on the flight line.

Description
There are pilots...and then there are the ground pounders. They live inside the threat ring delivering close air-to-ground support of battlefield ops. This is where the triple A and SAMs fire point-blank...and there's no place to hide. The first rule of survival; fly fast or fly armor. Either way, you better know how to take a hit. Brief the mission with the pilots of the F-16 Falcon, A-10 Warthog and AV-8 Harrier from one flying lesson that takes place under the hottest conditions around. Using real-time mission profiles and live cockpit audio, Frontline Pilots is the ground-breaking new military-aviation series that puts views on the flight line.

Description
Canopies Up! is the first episode in a remarkable new series that introduces a refreshingly vivid and bright creative style to aviation programs. Original flightline footage. Cockpit cameras. Vivid colors. Natural cockpit sounds and radio chatter. Accompanied by narration from the pilots who fly the jets, as told to us in interviews across the nation. To those familiar with the critically acclaimed Eagles Over The Gulf series, the in-the-cockpit feel of this program should come as no surprise. Not only will you hear the words of the pilots and see their aircraft in stunning detail, but we've also added more in-flight and air-to-air footage than ever before. In Canopies Up!, the pilots of America's frontline military jets tell you about their aircraft and the demands of their job. From assignment night to combat, from the C5A to the F15E, you'll see and hear the world of military aviators as if you were there yourself. Special footage, released here for the first time, comes directly from combat cameras filming live, on location in theatre, and at air bases and stations across America. You'll hear about the KC135 that had two engines torn from its wing, and A-7 that takes a barricaded landing and, in possibly the most dramatic air-to-air audio ever, an F16 pilot as he prepares to punch out over Iraqi territory. This is the world of America's frontline air power - told entirely in the words of the pilots of the 1990s - in a program you will enjoy for years.
