Go inside the cockpit of the plane that defied the odds and expectations to become the primary fighter for the Navy and Marines.
- Climb into the cockpit of one of the most advanced planes ever developed.
- Hear from the pilots who have flown the Hornet in combat.

It is one of the most successful and versatile planes ever developed, capable of engaging enemy fighters at Mach 2 and dropping 17,000 pounds of ordinance. It is the primary fighter for both the US Navy and the Marines, and it is so sophisticated that it is scheduled to remain in service through 2025. But the F-18 Hornet almost never got off the ground.
HEAVY METAL goes from the factory floor to the skies over Iraq to tell the complete story of this remarkable aircraft, speaking to top pilots and crews, military planners and leading scholars.
