Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith
This Discovery Channel program journeys to Lagge, Germany, where a group of U.S. Navy FA-18 Hornets will complete a training exercise called "Red October." As the cameras roll, the U.S. planes engage in mock encounters with a group of East German MiG pilots. This exercise teaches pilots how to handle challenging multi-plane formations while carrying out difficult maneuvers and orders. Additional segments also show American pilots flying one-on-one with German F-4s and Russian MiG-29s.
