A must-have for any aviation buff. This series uses the latest computer technology to recreate history's greatest air battles, including Guadalcanal (WWII), Mig Alley (Korea), and Operation Bolo (Vietnam), plus ten others. The series also makes good use of archival footage from the period to help illustrate the tactics and machines. The recreations are expertly done and very exciting (the "camera" even shakes when a plane flies by). As of now (March 2007) it's still running on the History Channel, every Friday. You can see it and judge for yourself. I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

Using computer graphics better than any video game, but reminding you of one this series was marvelous. Though only on for two seasons without explanation as to why it disappeared, at least there are dvd's of this wonderful program. Detailing aerial battles from World War 1 and 2, Korea and Vietnam you get the inside stories from the pilots themselves who participated in these battles. For an aerial history enthusiast this series is not to be missed.
