Aerial America

Some people like to hop in a car to take a road trip across America, visiting as many landmarks as possible along the way. Since such a trek can take a while to complete, taking a flight across America might be a better option for some people. ``Aerial America'' takes viewers on such a flight, offering rare looks at some of the nation's best-loved landmarks from high in the sky. Cameras capture the history and pageantry of America as they zoom over busy cityscapes and quiet, rural lands. Many episodes focus on a specific state, showcasing highlights of the state's beauty, while others revolve around themes such as the best small towns and natural wonders found in the country.
