Watch Dangerous Flights
- 1 Season
Discovery Channel has a show called Dangerous Flights. Ferry Pilots, or pilots who transport aircraft around the world, have a very dangerous and exciting job. They transport aircraft ranging from million dollar jets to single engine planes, and they do this across distances those planes were never meant to fly. This show covers the ensuing difficulties and dangers of such a task, including engine troubles, strike, and demanding customers. These ferry pilots will fly a plane through a war zone, across deserts, over the arctic, and spanning oceans. A plane usually meant for short flights will be seen taking trips to distant places for delivery. Sometimes the plane might stall, and sometimes it will get caught in a storm, but in the end it is the skill and luck of these cowboy pilots that overcome the odds against them. When it hits the fan, or propeller in this case, you get to see what the show is all about. Imagine putting a huge gas tank inside a tiny plane, and flying it thousands of miles. Dangerous Flights is directed by John Driftmier and Murray Nicol, cinematography by the former; with a cast including Aviation broker Cory and Captain Randy. With each episode in a different locale, and with plenty of action.
