I have been a fan of the History channels “Dogfights” series for a while. It uses animated re-inactments, and also is usually narrated by the actual pilots and other aircraft experts. This is one of my favorite episodes so far, called “Air Ambush”. There are 5 parts, this is part 1. At first the computer animation seems a bit gay, but give it a chance. Amazing stuff, and if you want browse some of the other episodes they are usuallt linked. It spans all the way from WWI to Iraq. Seems best if you watch them in chronolgical order too.
