Fighter Pilot: Operation Red Flag
IMAX audiences get an exhilarating ride in the F-15 Eagle, one of the most robust andsuccessful fighter planes ever developed, in this 47-minute armchair adventure. Statistics have shown that most possibly life-threatening fighter-pilot “events” occur during their first 10 missions. We follow young pilot John Stratton to the Red Flag training grounds in Nevada, where groups of international allied pilots complete their final training and simulated 10 missions before being sent into actual combat. Under director-producer Stephen Low, the film unfolds as a rumination on heroism and teamwork while refusing to become a propaganda spreadsheet for either pro- or anti-war zealots.
