I Watched This Show When Very Young
maddutchy from United States
1 October 2005
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.
