  • Disc 3. The Zero killer (No Allied aircraft can match Japan's deadly Zero until the American Navy deploys the fearsome F6F Hellcat. Strap in with legendary dogfighters Robert Duncan, Hamilton McWhorter, and Alex Vraciu to relive the epic dogfights of 1943 that wrote a new chapter in the annals of aerial combat) -- The last gunfighter (Tackle the fierce North Vietnamese MiG in the Navy's best fighter, the F8 Crusader, alongside jocks Paul Speer and Phil Wood, and re-live Lt. Commander Richard Schaffert's legendary dogfight as, out of missiles and guns jammed, he faces a lethal MiG-17) -- Death of the Japanese Navy (Witness the 1944 Battle of Samar, one of the most lionized David vs. Goliath naval battles in history. Taffy III, a small U.S. task unit of tin can destroyers and baby flat-tops utterly destroys a mighty Japanese fleet led by the Yamato, the world's biggest battleship)
  • Disc 4. Long odds (Dogfights gets in the cockpit with legendary World War II Navy ace "Swede" Vejtasa, relives the 45-minute battle for survival against Japanese fighters with medal of honor winner Jay Zeamer, and soars with Air Force Lt. Col. Leo Thorsness as his F-105 Thunderchief takes on a flight of skilled MiG-17's in the skies over Vietnam!) -- Dogfights of the Middle East (The Israeli Air Force soars into combat over the tombs of the Pharaohs in the 1967 Six Day War, and enters hostile Jordan for a top secret mission with 119 Squadron Commander Ran Ronen before getting into a swirling dogfight directly over the Egyptian base) -- Hunt for the Bismarck (As the German's Bismarck attacks the British forces in the North Atlantic during World War II, the Brits retaliate with every weapon they have, including the Swordfish torpedo-bombers who aid in the Bismarck's ultimate destruction)
