Average Cable TV fare

"You can't fairly judge this DVD by the standards of modern movies, since it is constructed almost entirely of film from a variety of historical sources of varying quality. It is most like an average sort of documentary that you might see on cable TV, of interest to those who have an appreciation for military aviation.What is most appealing is that in the second part of the disc, Canopies Up!, the narration is provided by aviators themselves, as they describe their world in their own words. One down side is the overlap between the two portions of the disc, where one harrowing incident involving an American pilot during the Gulf War is covered in detail in both sections. Once would have been sufficient."
