March 24, 2017 — Being an instructor is always a difficult job. But how much more difficult does the job become, if a teacher recognizes that a student’s failure to take in the lessons could result in his or her death?
The instructors at Pensacola’s Naval Air Station are faced with that issue every time they encounter a new group of recruits.
Marine Lieutenant Colonel Bill Kelly (award-winning television legend James Brolin (Marcus Welby, M.D., Catch Me If You Can) was a war hero and one of the top gun fighter pilots of his time. Now, he isn’t too happy with his latest assignment — to train a group of Marines to become a crisis task force. His elite group of officers is multi-talented, dedicated and tough — but even the best officers can have issues when their personal lives affect their concentration.
For three seasons, Pensacola: Wings of Gold told the stories of the instructors, the students chosen to become an elite military task force and the people who live in and around the base. It is also the story of the important and dangerous missions these pilots fly.
The show also stars Bobby Hosea (Independence Day) and Kenny Johnson (The Shield, Saving Grace), Barbara Niven (A Perfect Ending) and Michael Trucco (Hush).
