Overview

Synopsis

Weapons at War: Naval Aviation
It has been written that landing a jet on an aircraft carrier at night for the first time is the ultimate test for a pilot. This episode from The History Channel series features a history of the development of ship-based aviation. As this program reveals, naval aviation began in 1910 when aviator Eugene Ely took off from a makeshift wooden runway built atop a warship. The program covers the variety of planes used by the Navy, from wood-and-canvas biplanes to modern mach-speed fighter jets and bombers, and also explains how different planes triggered changes in the ships. Highlights include battle footage from famous engagements such as the Marianas Turkey Shoot, Midway, and the Doolittle Raid, a chronicle of the role that carrier-based planes have played in every conflict from World War II to the Gulf War, and interviews with flight-deck crews and pilots. ~ Steve Blackburn, Rovi
