About Showdown: Air Combat
Showdown: Air Combat has not been cancelled! We're just taking a little time to finish up the last couple of episodes. New SHOWDOWNS are on their way! The American Heroes Channel takes you on an aerial journey with a world premiere series, Showdown: Air Combat.
Tune in and see recreations of history’s most compelling dogfights with the restored aircraft from every era of aerial warfare flying against each other.
U.S. Air Force Major Paul “Max” Moga of the Air Combat Command’s 1st Fighter Wing hosts the series and offers amazing insight into each aircraft’s strengths and weaknesses, its place in the evolutionary timeline of aircraft design innovation and the ground-breaking dogfighting tactics employed in each confrontation.
From a chase plane, Major Moga provides play-by-play commentary of the fast-paced action as you fly alongside these historic warbirds.
But the show is not just a celebration of the aircraft’s technical glory, Major Moga also introduces you to the extraordinary pilots who flew these planes on their original missions.
