It’s called “Speed & Angels” – three words guaranteed to quicken the pulse of anyone who’s ever flown fighters, since the words that follow after are “fight’s on!”
Speed and Angels is the true life story and feature-length action documentary about two navy officers chasing their dreams to become fighter pilots. The film follows them during the most dangerous parts of their training and as they go to war, where the realities of being a fighter pilot test their limits.
The film includes epic aerial footage in stunning HD‚Äîincluding the last ever F-14 Tomcat dogfights‚Äîand rare naval archival and wartime footage. Thanks to unprecedented access granted by the navy, Speed and Angels gives an inside look at people’s journeys as fighter pilots as it has never before been seen.
The tag-line for the movie is, “Behind every fighter pilot is a dream.”
And, since the movie is about F-14 pilots, it’s probably safe to add, “And behind that dream is a Hornet pilot, closing to guns on the both of ‘em.”
Which, yes thank you, I absolutely do crack myself up.
