Rule violation.  >:(
True. If you will notice my account was created in 2013 when i looked at this forum and it was way over my head. My first post is in 2016 when (parts of) it wasn't. Before I remembered this account I made another in 2016 and then deleted it. Let the jury rule on this violation ;D
If credit cards are the death of me, let my statement be my will

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Let me know if you find out :)
He told me you'll be speaking on more than one day, is that what you signed up for?
I don't sin, I give myself opportunities to repent.

Yes.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Not sure what Jewish entails here, but Above and Beyond was pretty cool. Might have been some language.

Needs to be appropriate for a wide range of people, across the spectrum of orthodox Jews that would watch a documentary.

In case you haven't looked it up yet, it's about the (mostly) American Jews who came to Israel in '48 to pilot its first aircraft.

The language I recall was one of the pilots calling a Messerschmitt variant Israel had obtained by a less than flattering nickname, and maybe some discussion of the 'lady chasing' some of them did when they were training in Rome.

It's mostly interviews, with either the interviewee or relevant photos while they're talking (though their are also some cool CGI sequences done by ILM - Spielberg connections FTW!). There were only 2 women interviewed - surviving wives of pilots - and I don't recall any tznius issues (don't rely on me for that).

There are some truly amazing characters in this story. There's also a PBS documentary about Al Schwimmer, who is tangential to the Above and Beyond Story, called A Wing and a Prayer. He 'smuggled' US war surplus planes to Israel, was convicted because of that in the US, and went on to be the first CEO of Israel Aerospace Industries at Ben Gurion's request. I haven't seen that one, though I'm familiar with the story.

Sounds really good but
This will be a problem: One memorable man peppers his recollections with some profanity ("s--t," "half-ass," and one use of "f--k") and some colorful but perhaps offensive Yiddish expressions ("tuches,"  "farshtunken").

I did say 'the language I recall' ;D. That rings a bell though now - that one guy was a huge character.
