Best gift ever, best that money could bu
By Leigh Proud Daughter
We bought this as a Christmas present for my Dad who proudly served in the Air Force and was a private flight instructor for many years. He said several times that he could have not wished for a better present and I don't believe he has stopped watching the DVD's since we gave to him.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
