That’s Entertainment

Battlestar Galactica?  Sorry.  Star Trek?  Forget about it.  Star Wars?  I don’t think so.  You want riveting airborne battles?  Then try the real thing: the History Channel’s new series, Dogfights. This is compelling television, using the latest technology and the memories of America’s Aces (often living, and interviewed on screen) to reconstruct some of the most hair-raising aerial battles in history.  If you were to suspend ten cameras in balloons across a huge expanse of sky, insert a cockpit camera in the plane of the Red Baron’s himself (and perhaps another camera on Snoopy’s doghouse), you might come up with something this exciting.
