A bit of a sad attempt to overemphasize the relevance of the U.K. in Naval Aviation. Sure Brittan had some moments, but in the overall historical significance of Naval Aviation, the U.K. is a little more than a footnote. The Imperial Navy of Japan was far more of a Naval Aviation force than the U.K. ever was, yet the film barely mentions them and focuses more on kamikaze attacks than anything else. The sour grapes tone is not honoring of the great naval history enjoyed by the U.K. "the U.S. supercarriers are too expensive, the U.S. carriers use evil nuclear power, look how innovative the U.K. is we have ski jumps!", just sad really. The U.K. has nothing to be ashamed of when it comes to Naval history, but the tone of this film doesn't show it at all.
Only 10 minutes into watching this video and I must have said it three times already..."This is the best video history of Naval aviation I have ever seen."
It fills in the gaps of information that is omitted in most TV or YouTube documentary videos or series dealing with Naval Aviation.
Nothing against the producers of those other works which have provided good information.
This is just more appealing to me because it seems like the perspective and point of view I would convey if I was editing the footage. And speaking of editing, I appreciate the extended opening of video clips in the intro to this episode. It was footage the production likely paid for but didnt make the final cut.
So, instead of throwing it away, it's like the editor reasoned that there are probably some viewers who will enjoy these shots even if they arent in the scripted, narrated and finished product.
If you have seen one Naval Aviation video, you've seen em all, right?
This is the best I have ever seen in over fifty years of casual fandom of the subject.
Any WWII, Navy, Aviation or Naval Aviation fans should check this one out.
If you are like me, you'll enjoy learning the new information in this production and seeing new scenes you have probably never seen before.

Poor production value. Lots of "dead air". Story will be about F-18's and F-111's but they'll be showing footage of F-16's and F-15's. Still entertaining but don't expect to be any smarter once it's finished.
