The Military Channel - F-15s F-117s against Saddam - No contest - Not

Technology and superior American workmanship and superior American
Training.In Operation Desert Storm, the F-15 Eagle and the F-117 Nighthawk
changed the face of war. The F-15's radar locates targets 100 miles
away and the F-117's stealth technology gives it the advantage of
surprise.This show provides a lively and informative overview of the various
planes employed by the United States and its coalition allies during
the 1991 Gulf War, focusing on how particular tasks in the air campaign
were fulfilled by specialized planes. Relying on interviews with
pilots, this video provides a wealth of detail about the various
planes, from their inception on the drawing board to their deployments
in the Gulf, and it's a treat for those who are fascinated by the
technical aspect of jets. However, it also makes a responsible effort
to portray the air campaign in the Gulf as a deadly and dangerous
business, not the clean "Nintendo war" some observers thought it to be.
For instance, there is a segment on the controversial air attacks on
the Iraqi column retreating from Kuwait in the final hours of the war.
Footage of jets streaking through brilliant blue skies is balanced with
some thoughtful mention that these sleek and beautiful machines are
also very deadly weapons
