“Outback & Inverted”
In this episode, we start by meeting the ‘Air Bandits’ – a motley trio of extreme aerobatic pilots led by Lithuanian legend Jurgis Kairys. We then profile the iconic F-16 fighter and hear first hand about close encounters with heat seeking missiles in combat.
In part two, we head down-under and into the Australian Outback to take an exclusive inside look at the Temora Aviation Museum and meet it’s multi-millionaire owner who takes a hands-on approach when it comes to collecting and flying his own collection of rare warbird aircraft.
We then go on a military exercise at high speed and low level as we put a C-130 Hercules crew through their paces in the treacherous Southern Alps during Exercise SkyTrain.
