Aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush cruises deep in the Arabian Gulf for a six-month deployment in April 2017 to help ground troops defeat ISIS. Twenty stories high and more than three football fields long, this 100,000-ton ship carries 70 specialized aircraft armed and ready to fly into battle. Witness an up-close look at life aboard the carrier and the rigorous preparation highly skilled pilots and crew undergo before risking their lives to give air support to allied forces fighting on the ground.

Ready to Launch provides a comprehensive portrait of the crew members of the USS George H.W. Bush to capture what it takes to successfully operate an aircraft carrier at sea, from feeding the crew of 5,000 men and women on board to delivering supplies to keep the warship running. Smithsonian Channel also explores the roles on the ever-busy flight deck.

Sorry, but right now we don't have any sources for this episode.

Air Wing dives in on the action-packed role that an aircraft carrier's air wing plays, profiling several pilots of F/A-18/E Super Hornets and their missions. Cameras follow pilots from the USS Harry S. Truman as they destroy ISIS targets in Iraq, dropping the most bombs ever in a single deployment. The episode further explores the future of the carrier air wing, and how it may evolve to ensure that U.S. aircraft carriers will maintain a presence of strength and a mission of goodwill throughout all waters of the Earth.

S01E04 - USS Ford Air Date: 11 June 2018 00:00 -

Sorry, but right now we don't have any sources for this episode.

Thirteen years and a cast of thousands went into the making of the new $14 billion USS Gerald R. Ford – the ultimate evolution of naval technology. The newest, most advanced warship in the United States Navy, it is the first new aircraft carrier designed since the USS Nimitz in 1968, and only the fourth class in aircraft carrier history. With rare access granted by the U.S. Navy, Smithsonian Channel follows every moment of construction. Much of its material and technology has never before been seen, including the electromagnetic aircraft launch system (EMALS), which the Navy has been developing, and the Advanced Arresting Gear (AAG).
