Speed & Angels: fighter pilot documentary


For the last several years, my friend Michelle Hansen has been working hard as a producer on Speed & Angels, a new indy documentary about fighter pilots. Directed by Peyton Wilson, the story follows two Navy officers, Jay and Meagan, through flight school, dogfights in Nevada, aircraft carrier landing exercises, and eventually the harsh realities of the Iraq war. Top Gun references may be obvious, but accurate. Meagan (callsign: Slick) decided at 12 that she wanted to be a fighter pilot after seeing Top Gun with her dad. Speed & Angels will be screened at the Sedona International Film Festival on February 29 and March 1 and at the San Jose Cinequest Film Festival on March 9. Link (Thanks, Ed Szylko!)
