Ever imagine what it would be like to participate in the most historic air battles of all time? Imagine no more. DOGFIGHTS puts you in the cockpit to re-create famous air-to-air engagements. Computer graphics, animation, firsthand accounts, and archival footage make these thrilling and dangerous dogfights all too real.
A desperate enemy with nothing left to lose is a terrible thing to face. Allied pilots learned this dreadful reality as they flew out to meet the famous kamikaze and other less-known but equally fearsome suicidal attackers. Just letting a single one past meant the death of dozens of comrades-in-arms, so every maneuver and machine-gun burst had to be perfect.
In this white-knuckle two-hour special, you will meet pilots who faced German and Japanese suicide bombers over the Pacific and Europe, meet survivors of the attacks and learn the ingenious tactics improvised to defeat this unprecedented threat.
This hair-raising episode of DOGFIGHTS puts you in the cockpit to hunt down and destroy swarms of kamikaze before they achieve their horrible goal.
