The last really good show I saw on the HC was "Dogfights," which was a good mix of CG, interviews and info; I wonder what's going on w/that channel?
I eventually tired of this series, as well. I mean, I know the network is US based but, there were PLENTY of great pilots from all nationalities that never got profiled because they were not American. I mean just because Hans Joachim Marseille or Saburo Sakai were not American pilots does not deter from their greatness. If you profile Marseille it does not make you pro-Nazi, it just means you recognize a great pilot when you see one. H3ll, he shot down 17 enemy aircraft in ONE day. Including 8 kills in 10 minutes. I also do not recall any British or other Allied pilots being profiled on the show, although I may not have seen every episode. There were plenty of fighter pilots from WWI onward that deserve recognition for their abilities regardless of the flag they served.
