National Geographic Supercarrier USS Ronald Reagan
The USS Ronald Reagan: the world's most advanced aircraft carrier. A floating piece of American territory. And a powerful weapon, swarming with planes, explosives, and thousands of the Navy's best crew. This formidable marine monster is also a mobile combat airport, perfectly designed for one task: to launch and retrieve legions of strike fighter jets anywhere in the world, on extremely short notice. And the 5000 men and women on board have to perform this task to perfection. Surrounded by roaring jet engines and dangerous weapons one mistake could mean disaster. From the Flight Deck to the cockpit to the Captain's chair, we're taking a behind-the-scenes look at the American military's ultimate weapon the Supercarrier: USS Ronald Reagan.
