Toughest Carrier Jobs
A U.S. Navy aircraft carrier is the tip of the spear for today?s high-tech military operations. Launching F-18 fighter jets from the flight deck in under two seconds makes an aircraft carrier one of the most dangerous work places in the world. One lapse in judgment, and thousands of lives and billions of dollars in equipment can go up in flames. For the men and women aboard an aircraft carrier, every move they make will result in critical success or catastrophic failure. This programme includes dramatic interviews with fighter pilots, landing officers, the ship?s captain, and other crew. Cameras catch all of the action above and below deck, revealing hard-hitting facts and treacherous visuals.
