An aerial tour of New Mexico, including a bird’s-eye view of Roswell, are the subject of a Smithsonian Channel show today.

An episode of “Aerial America” focusing on the state will include discussions of the 1947 incident and the aircraft storage and dismantling work that occurs now at the Roswell International Air Center.

“Take flight over 121,000 square miles of timeless beauty and national treasures, from the Rio Grande, to adobe structures and dormant volcanoes. See what brought (Georgia) O’Keeffe to the Land of Enchantment, as well as Billy the Kid, the makers of the atomic bomb and perhaps even visitors from far away galaxies,” the show’s website says.

According to the Smithsonian Channel’s website, it is carried by some cable and online commercial video providers in the local area. Check individual providers’ listings for air times.

The “Aerial America: New Mexico” episode is also scheduled to run again Feb. 9 and March 3.
