In the last days of the Vietnam War being a combat pilot aboard the USS Midway almost guaranteed you some heavy action. This gripping episode of DOGFIGHTS recounts some of the most thrilling and intense missions flown in the history of air combat.
Join Lt. Henry "Black Bart" Bartholomay and Lt. Pat Arwood who, shortly after leaving the storied deck of the Midway behind, lock into a deadly cat-and-mouse with two MiG-19s. Tables turn, then turn again, and the Americans deliver a devastating one-two punch and return safely to the Midway!
Also hold on tight through every twist and turn of flight leader Vic Kovaleski's victorious encounter with a MiG-17, a battle that gained him the last MiG kill of Vietnam.
These stirring missions show just how well the USS Midway earned her rest!
