Carrier, a 10-part series filmed aboard the USS Nimitz, is a character-driven
immersion in the high-stakes world of a nuclear aircraft carrier.
Making the film Carrier required 17 filmmakers to take a six-month journey aboard the
aircraft carrier during its deployment to the Gulf in support of the Iraq War.
They disembarked from Coronado, California on May 7, 2005 and returned
there November 8, 2005 with stops at Pearl Harbor, Hong Kong, Guam,
Kuala Lumpur, Bahrain and Perth, Australia.
The segment above shows fighter pilots attempting to land on the
ship during high seas off the west coast of Australia.
