Description: Area 88 takes place in the late 1970s/early 1980s and is largely set in a war-embroiled Middle Eastern country called the Kingdom of Asran. The war uses mercenary fighter pilots, with its headquarters at a secret desert air force base called Area 88.. Up-and-coming airline pilot Shin Kazama gets tricked into signing up by his "friend" Satoru Kanzaki. Facing execution for deserting from Area 88, Shin reluctantly turns into a fighter pilot and attempts to serve his three year contract out. Area 88 attracts all kinds of people with all kinds of assorted and often sordid pasts. Among the other mercenaries are Mick Simon, an American who couldn't adjust to normal life after his tour of duty in the Vietnam War. Mick becomes Shin's best friend at Area 88. Another familiar sight at Area 88 is McCoy, a greedy weapons dealer who sells everything the mercenaries need from toilet paper to the planes that the mercenaries fly in battle.

if your a fan of war movies, jets and dog fight then your gonna love this series. it has great action with the dog fights. there’s a lot of eye candy with the jets used in this show. the designs are really detailed and depicted the planes well. The only trouble i have in this show is the F-14 and the harrier. for one the f-14 isn’t a single seat fighter. It needs a Radar Intercept Officer in the back to be fully utilized.they could have made changes to the f-14 flight system but that wasn’t mentioned in the series. the harrier which is another highly complicated aircraft couldn’t have been flown by a kid but then again this is an anime. aside from technicalities between the reliability or the feasibility of the flying conditions of the aircrafts the show has been a very entertaining ride with likable characters and good action. its worth the watch.
