About the Show
A US Navy aircraft carrier is the tip of the spear for today's high-tech military operations. Launching 54,000-pound F-18 fighter jets from the flight deck in under two seconds makes an aircraft carrier one of the most dangerous workplaces in the world. One lapse in judgement and thousands of lives and billions of dollars in equipment can go up in flames. This documentary reveals how every action taken by the men and women aboard an aircraft carrier could result in critical success or catastrophic failure.
