A documentary produced by the National Geographic Channel featuring Taiwan’s fighter pilots will soon make its debut in Taiwan and reveal the stories behind Taiwan’s military pilots.

The Ministry of National Defense said Tuesday, that the first episode of the series “Taiwan’s Elite Warriors: Fighter Pilots” will be aired on August 13th

The seven-episode series, which took about 15 months to produce, will broadcast every Thursday.

The series documents the stories of military officers receiving training at the Air Force Academy in Kaohsiung on their way to becoming fighter pilots.

The program marks the fourth time National Geographic has featured a special on Taiwan’s military, following documentaries on the Air Force’s Thunder Tiger Aerobatics Team in January.
