General Note / OCR

Through riveting, action-packed battle footage and compelling narration, Air Combat II explores the astonishing events that depict America's first century in the skies.

Combining archival and original footage, history comes alive through the feats of those whose exploits in the air changed the way wars are fought, from WWII to Desert Storm. This 13-part series is hosted by Monte Markham.

VIETNAM CHOPPERS The helicopter came of age during the Vietnam War and is one of the most identified symbols of that conflict. Pressed into service for everything from gunship to medevac, the helicopter found its calling in the treacherous jungles and rice paddies of Vietnam. VIETNAM CHOPPERS revisits a moment in history when the choppers and the pilots that flew them created a new type of conflict with no front lines, redefining the very nature of modern warfare.
