Smithsonian Channel: Pearl Harbor from Above

On Saturday night, Aerial America: Hawaii premiered on the Smithsonian Channel. The segment, one in a series devoted to viewing the country’s natural and manmade marvels from air, delivers on its promise to capture breathtaking footage. The video crew travels in a helicopter over Kilauea, one of the world’s most active volcanoes, and Waikiki, the birthplace of surfing, among other sites.

Watch this clip as the crew passes over Pearl Harbor. Today marks the 68th anniversary of the attack.

The show airs again tonight at 5 p.m. EST, on Thursday, 9 p.m. EST, and Saturday, 6 p.m. EST. For more viewings, see this calendar.
