Clipping the treetops and fighting for their lives, these pilots show you aerial combat at its deadliest!
- Re-creations and computer simulations combine with authentic battle footage.
- Dogfighting doesn't get any deadlier than these harrowing low-altitude engagements!
- Fly alongside the world's most accomplished pilots.
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.
This is what ''hitting the deck'' is all about! It's the worst place to engage, but it's where so many dogfights end up. There is no "upper hand," no chance to bail out, and maneuvers and tactics are drastically limited. Just feet above treetop level there is NO ROOM FOR ERROR.
In this gripping episode of DOGFIGHTS, witness firsthand the grim and grisly reality of low-level air-to-air combat. Fly low with American pilots in WWII, Korea and Vietnam as they survive brushes with enemy fighters - and the Earth.
July 1944, P-51Ds on a long-range bomber escort catch a German assault that leads to a whirling dogfight headed straight down. May 1952, Capt. James Kessler sets his F-86E Sabre on the tail of MiG-15s at 1000 feet. May 1967, the jungles of North Vietnam tickle the bellies of F-4Cs as they take on 16 MiG-17s.
This is some seriously down - WAY down - and dirty dogfighting presented, as always, with riveting graphics and first-hand narrative.
