Men and women from front-line squadrons reveal what it is like to serve and fly in today's Air Force.
It's the closest you can get to a Stealth Fighter without military clearance. DANGEROUS SKIES takes flight with the men and women of the Air Force as they perform their vital mission.
Fly in an F-16 Fighting Falcon patrolling the Iraqi border. Dogfight in an A-10 Thunderbolt during a training exercise high above the Mojave Desert. And get up-close with the Stealth fighter. Extensive cooperation with the U.S. Air Force allows INVESTIGATIVE REPORTSTM to provide this incredible behind-the-scenes tour of two Air Force combat squadrons. One is posted in Saudi Arabia, flying F-16s monitoring Iraq, the other trains in their A-10s over the Mojave Desert. Special cameras take you inside the cockpit to see what the pilot sees on these flights. From the sickening feeling of taking a "hit" in training to the tense patrol missions over enemy territory, DANGEROUS SKIES is as close to real flying as you can get. And the hosts for this inside look are 16 Air Force pilots, who tell what it is really like in the cockpit.
Like no other program available, DANGEROUS SKIES is an inside look at the new Air Force and the planes and people that make it work.
