Dogfights : The Bloodiest Day
Airs on Monday December 03 11:00 PM


May 10, 1972 was the biggest day of air combat in the Vietnam War. In addition to great "turn and burn" battles, the dogfights involve some remarkable electronic warfare as F4 Phantoms, F-105s, and numerous other aircraft as they descend on North Vietnam employing advanced radar jamming equipment, smart bombs, and other high-tech gear. Watch as famous battles are recreated using state-of-the-art computer graphics. First-hand accounts, rare archival footage and original shooting supplement the remarkable computer graphics.

Dogfights : P-51 Mustang
Airs on Tuesday December 04 11:00 PM


In the aerial battleground of World War II, the P-51 Mustang proved itself to be the most famous war bird in history. Take a look at three of its most memorable battles. On November 2, 1944, Capt. Donald Bryan leads a group of P-51s escorting B-24 bombers to their target deep inside of Germany when he runs into a huge gaggle of Me109s on the attack. On June 23, 1945, Second Lieutenant Bob Scamara takes off with a flight of Mustangs from Iwo Jima. His group is jumped by seventeen Zeroes. On April 7, 1945, pilot Richard Candelaria becomes one of the first Americans to face the jet menace. First-hand accounts, rare archival footage and original shooting supplement the remarkable computer graphics.

Dogfights : Dogfights of Desert Storm
Airs on Wednesday December 05 11:00 PM


A generational leap in technology and strategy is put to the ultimate test over enemy airspace in Iraq. The air combat of the future begins with America's first large scale air offensive since the Vietnam War. On the first night of the war an Iraqi Mirage F1 attacks an unarmed EF-111. Watch as F-15C pilots take on a pair of Iraqi MiG-25 interceptors. Finally Captain Cesar Rodriguez takes on MiGs, in a classic Beyond Visual Range engagement that illustrates the awe-striking power of modern weapons technology.

Dogfights : Tuskegee Airmen
Airs on Thursday December 06 11:00 PM

UPDATE 12/4/07

Dogfights: MiG Killers of Midway
Friday December 7 11pm[/B]
At the end of the Vietnam war the USS Midway's pilots and airmen engaged in some of the most thrilling and intense air combat. Six F4 Phantoms launched from the deck of the USS Midway, engage with North Vietnamese MiGs. The Phantoms destroy two MiGs. Watch as American pilots Bartholomay and Arwood down enemy MiG-19s over their home base at Kep. Then flight lead Vic Kovaleski brings down a MiG-17 scoring the last MiG kill of the war. Midway served honorably throughout Vietnam and even in Desert Storm but time finally caught up with her and the USS Midway was converted to a museum and now resides in San Diego, CA.

Excellent! My cable provider just made History Channel HD availble, but there hasn't been much pretty content, until now... Can't wait! I hope one day they'll be back with four more.
