NEW SERIES - HISTORY CHANNEL - AIR ACES

Post  Speed on Tue Jan 01, 2013 11:38 am

For those of us who lamented the demise of the Dogfights seried on the History Channel, they will air a new series starting this month call Air Aces.

This is interesting because I made a posting on the History Channel websight suggesting just such a series back when they announced cancellation of the Dogfights series. I recall listing about twenty of the top aces from WWI through to the Middle Eastern conflicts with a short story synopsis next to the better know aces. Who knows, maybe they actually do listen to the fans that watch their programming.

The series starts on 7 Jan with Buzz Beurling, then follows with Douglas Bader. Addition episodes to follow.

P.S. In my submission I really emphasised the incredible history of U.S. ace "Gabby" Grabeski who fought in WWII and Korea. Let's see if his story is included.

Thanks DNR. Aside from a few shows on HBO and AMC, Netflix, and Treehouse I'm completely ignorant of television programming. I will set the DVR for this.

This does look good. I hope we get to see Johnnie Johnson as well.

Cheers, Dean!
