    CARRIER | Focs'le Follies | PBS


    by PBS

    Focs'le Follies is a vaunted tradition in naval aviation. At the end of each line period, the squadrons on the ship gather to recognize which pilots have performed the best and to make fun of each other. One squadron is selected to perform a skit — in this case, VMFA-232, "The Red Devils." This scene did not make the final cut of CARRIER, which follows a core group of participants aboard the USS Nimitz, from the elite fighter pilots to the youngest sailors and everyone in between, as they navigate personal conflicts around their jobs, families, faith, patriotism, love and the war on terror. CARRIER premieres Sunday-Thursday, April 27-May 1, 2008, 9:00-11:00 p.m. ET on PBS (check local listings). For more information, visit
