    Comments about Super Carrier DVD Exclusive:

    This is a very informative DVD about the USS Eisenhower Super Carrier's post-reconditioning trials/pre-deployment training, and all of the work and danger/managed chaos that happens on board the US Navy's carriers day in and day out. The production is excellent, as it is typically with National Geographic productions. We get an up close and personal look at a couple of rookie fighter pilots going out for their pre-deployment flight and ordinance delivery training, including an emergency during one's night time training op. A very impressive look at one of the US Navy's premier warships - the Super Carrier!
