Air Warriors Full Episode Guide

  • The history and evolution of America's most legendary spy plane.

  • The history of the KC-135 Stratotanker, the 60-year-old aerial refueler that keeps fighter jets flying.

  • The inside story of the Harrier, the world's most famous short takeoff and vertical landing fighter jet.

  • Drones: they watch, analyze, even kill without ever risking a pilot's life. These unmanned aerial vehicles can be flown from anywhere on the globe and can get into places never before dreamed. They are widely used by military and civilians alike and can be seen almost everywhere, but exactly where, when, and how did these flying robots come to be? Join us as we follow drones over war zones, wildfires, and into aviation history as we detail their meteoric rise from yesterday’s obscure wonder to today’s global obsession.

  • The B-52 Stratofortress is also known as the B.U.F.F., or Big, Ugly, Fat Fellow. The B-52 is one imposing beast of a bomber, stretching 159 feet, capable of flying nearly 9,000 miles in a one trip, and capable of carrying up to 70,000 pounds of weapons at a time.

  • It's fast, it's acrobatic, and it's built to get in your face before you even know it's there. The F-16 Fighting Falcon is the lightest fighter in the Air Force inventory, and ushered in a new breed of dogfighter. Witness its origins during the Vietnam War, as the U.S. military raced to create a fighter that could hold its own against the Russian's MiG.
