Inspired by the passion of two young Navy officers and produced by former F-14 driver Francesco “Paco” Chierici, Speed & Angels follows Jay and Meagan as they chase their childhood dream of becoming naval aviators flying the mighty Tomcat. Their two and a half year journey takes them through dogfights in the Nevada desert, night landings on aircraft carriers off the Atlantic coast, and eventually to the biggest challenge young officers face: wartime deployment to Iraq.

What begins as a story of realizing a childhood dream turns into a story of fighting for one’s life and career as Jay and Meagan face the realities of war.
