If you love aircraft, the movie Top Gun, and incredible visuals, then this movie is for you. It isn't a hollywood story about a fighter Jockey, it's a documentary about the world's top pilots honing their skills over the desert southwest.
As the movie was shot in Imax film, the color and clarity of this blue ray are unsurpassed. I know, I used to work on the flight line, and if you crank up the volume you can experience a little of that chest pounding rumble of an F-15 going verticle from take-off, find out why they called the A-10 "the wart hog". It isn't because of it's shape!
The best scenes are from the air craft, flying 100 feet (it looks MUCH closer)over the tops of mountains at 500 knots, chasing the enemy...
I LOVE IT!!!
As an aviation photographer I often fly in fast jets and I can honestly say this is an excellent representation of jet fighters in side and out side the cockpit. The sound on the blu ray is awesome and the jets really rattle around the room on a surround sound system. The picture quality is crystal clear as you would expect from IMAX. The xercise is covered in some detail and the shots of the aircraft are truly stunning. It is very US centric so the UK contingent is given only a fleeting moment. The background music can overtake the aircraft noise a little but it is acceptable. The making of feature is alos excellent. If you love fast jets, hearing them, watching them, and want to get as close as you can to in the cocpit in glorious colour and sound then get this blu ray. Awesome.
I'm part of this close nit Air Force Family. I bought this movie because I wanted to see how well this DVD actually portrays what its like to be a "Fighter Pilot" & go through "Red Flag". I give this DVD 5 Stars all the way around!

We first saw Fighter Pilot: Operation Red Flag in an Imax theater, and we were thrilled to find a quality adaptation on DVD for our home entertainment system. Fighter Pilot is a fascinating, insightful documentary of an aerial war game designed to prepare the world's elite pilots for combat. It is an excellent purchase for everyone, from children who simply love airplanes to serious students of military history and operations. The entire family will enjoy it.
video is short, sound is great though. there aren't too many other blu ray videos out there yet to compare to. probably would be better to spend my money on a real movie, not a video like this which is part documentary part movie
