Contents
  • Disc 1. MiG Alley (Cruise the deadly skies of Korea's MiG Alley with American aces Robbie Risner and Ralph Parr as they stake their lives in sleek F-86 Sabres against nimble Russian-built MiG-15 fighters in history's first jet dogfights) -- Air ambush (Legendary fighter pilot Colonel Robin Olds and his squadron, the Wolfpack, use themselves as bait to lure North Vietnamese MiG-21's into the most elaborate air sting of the war, code-named Project Bolo)
  • Disc 2. Flying Tigers (It's two weeks after Pearl Harbor, and Aces Tex Hill and John Alison, in their P-40 Tomahawks, lead the legendary band of Americans known as the Flying Tigers as they slash through China, and fight to the death against the agile Japanese 1-97 Nate) -- Guadalcanal (Join celebrated Marine Capt. John Smith and Medal of Honor recipients Jeff De Blanc and Jim Swett of the tiny Cactus Air Force as they pit their instincts, courage, and 4F4 Wildcats against Japan's deadliest flyers in the skies over Guadalcanal in August of 1942) -- Hell over Hanoi (Dogfights goes supersonic in the skies over Vietnam with F4 Phantom pilots Fred Olmsted and Dan Cherry, as they take on the most feared threat in the sky, the MiG-21. Relive the battle that made an Air Force out of American Steve Ritchie)
  • Disc 3. The Zero killer (No Allied aircraft can match Japan's deadly Zero until the American Navy deploys the fearsome F6F Hellcat. Strap in with legendary dogfighters Robert Duncan, Hamilton McWhorter, and Alex Vraciu to relive the epic dogfights of 1943 that wrote a new chapter in the annals of aerial combat) -- The last gunfighter (Tackle the fierce North Vietnamese MiG in the Navy's best fighter, the F8 Crusader, alongside jocks Paul Speer and Phil Wood, and re-live Lt. Commander Richard Schaffert's legendary dogfight as, out of missiles and guns jammed, he faces a lethal MiG-17) -- Death of the Japanese Navy (Witness the 1944 Battle of Samar, one of the most lionized David vs. Goliath naval battles in history. Taffy III, a small U.S. task unit of tin can destroyers and baby flat-tops utterly destroys a mighty Japanese fleet led by the Yamato, the world's biggest battleship)
  • Disc 4. Long odds (Dogfights gets in the cockpit with legendary World War II Navy ace "Swede" Vejtasa, relives the 45-minute battle for survival against Japanese fighters with medal of honor winner Jay Zeamer, and soars with Air Force Lt. Col. Leo Thorsness as his F-105 Thunderchief takes on a flight of skilled MiG-17's in the skies over Vietnam!) -- Dogfights of the Middle East (The Israeli Air Force soars into combat over the tombs of the Pharaohs in the 1967 Six Day War, and enters hostile Jordan for a top secret mission with 119 Squadron Commander Ran Ronen before getting into a swirling dogfight directly over the Egyptian base) -- Hunt for the Bismarck (As the German's Bismarck attacks the British forces in the North Atlantic during World War II, the Brits retaliate with every weapon they have, including the Swordfish torpedo-bombers who aid in the Bismarck's ultimate destruction)
