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.
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!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
