Bush piloting in the Congo, a country crippled by 30 years of war and famine, may be one of the world's most hazardous professions. Brave men and women risk life and limb to transport cargo to this remote region of the world. Landing strips are often little more than pitted dirt roads and local militia is known to fire on them, so what drives them to do it? Hear their harrowing accounts and witness firsthand the courage and skill it takes to land planes on some of the world's most challenging terrain.

How our DVDs and DVD-Rs Differ
Customers who purchase programs in the NG DVD Exclusives Library will receive a non-interactive, play only disc. There is no chaptering information on these DVDs, but there are chapter marks approximately every five minutes, which make it easy to fast forward through a program. The DVD-R format provides the digital video and audio quality you expect from all of our DVDs.
NOTE: The NG DVD Exclusives titles are not closed-captioned. We apologize for any inconvenience this limitation may cause.
