Race To Hawaii

For many years, Hawaii was too remote to be reached by airplane. That changed in the 1920s, when the Army, Navy and a colorful assortment of civilian pilots all raced to be first in flight to the islands.



   Hawaii Five-O meets Wiseguy in this chronicle of brazen gangsters, brutal murders, and a father’s quest for vengeance – all set against an unlikely backdrop of seductive tropical beauty.



For a decade, a freewheeling band of smugglers brought ton after ton of marijuana into Southern marshes. Then came their undoing: Operation Jackpot,  an opening volley in Reagan’s War on Drugs.
