Angle of Attack
This 2-part documentary chronicles the 100-year history of Naval aviation - from wobbly gliders and the first shipboard landing in 1911 to modern supersonic jets and unmanned aerial vehicles. It deftly interweaves archival footage, interviews with historical and military experts, contemporary footage of cutting-edge aircraft and insights from today's "Top Gun" fighter pilots in the Marine Corps and Navy.
