Alexander IV

Twenty-five years after it entered active service, the US Army's Black Hawk remains the world's most advanced twin turbine helicopter. It has flown in missions around the world, in every situation imaginable, performing roles from tank-busting to medical evacuation. And thanks to sophisticated technology that allows it to operate with near-daylight efficiency in the dark, the Black Hawk provides the army with exceptional night-flying operational capability. BLACK HAWK: NIGHT STALKER follows the versatile chopper into battles from Grenada to Mogadishu, analyzing its famous failures and showing why it is nevertheless regarded as one of the most successful military aircraft ever built. Extensive footage, much of it never seen before, shows the Black Hawk in action, and interviews with servicemen, including Mike Durant, who was captured by Somali warlord Aidid's men, offer an inside view of what it is like to fly the Black Hawk in hostile situations.
