I Watched This Show When Very Young
1 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this show on TV when I was 9 years old. It was different every week and was made up of recreations of actual incidents involving flight. Most were centered around WWII. Gen. Kenny that introduced the episodes was the commander of the 5th Air Force under MacArthur in WWII.

I would love to see it and many other shows of that era come out in DVD sets. I suppose if I viewed them now, they might seem odd but I really enjoyed them back then. I am sure the episodes were made with a tight budget but it was entertaining and history.

This series was shown at a time when the military was in a positive light. Between WWII and the Cold War, Americans relied on and trusted the military without question. A lot of military-related series were on TV in those days: "The Silent Service", "West Point", "Annapolis Story", "Navy Log" for 'factual' stories and then there was "Steve Canyon" for the contemporary Air Force. All of these would be great to see on DVD at the very least as a part of Television history.
