Default Showdown: Air Combat - Disappointment

This show depicts famous air combat battles during different engagments/conflicts. This weeks show featured the dogfight that granted James Jabara the first Jet Ace. He was flying his F-86 Sabre against the Mig 15.

I was hoping it would have been more combat oriented. Instead it was a comparision of each aircraft with a 10 min combat session (Mainly CGI and random shots of a F-86 and Mig 15 flying.) On top of that, this big headed F-22 pilot compared everything to himself and the F-22 (Yawn)

I was extremely disappointed by this show. I have cancelled my scheduled DVR recordings and will watch better aircarft shows.

If you are interested in seeing the show, it is on the Military channel sundays at 10pm EST

My son and I were also looking forward to the series. Big letdown. I liked the re-run of "Dogfights: Last of the Gunfighters" a whole lot better. It came on the History Channel last night at 8:00. Love those F8's.

Geez Bryan,

You'd complain if someone gave you a million bucks cuz of the taxes....

J/K broham!

Thanks for the heads-up, tho.

Discovery has a new show on the Apollo program - I just DVR'd the first episode. Hope that one is decent.
