Product Description

This television documentary on aircraft carriers gives an overview of the mission behind the carrier and the purpose, training, and life of the people who operate it, and its aircraft, 24 hours a day for six months or more each tour. The program consists of comments by the crew of the carrier Independence and film of the personnel in action in the Persian Gulf. They are constantly launching and landing aircraft to keep alert and well rehearsed for action. There is tension onboard because they have orders to shoot down any planes flying in the "no-fly zone" over Iraq. After showing some of the jobs being performed by the men, there is a segment on "Top Gun" training at Miramar Air Station in San Diego, CA. The documentary offers an up-close look at the physically and mentally demanding training that these elite pilots must endure. ~ Thomas Carpenter, Rovi
