Fort Campbell, KY – Top Gear, an American motoring television series on the History Channel, is scheduled to air their second episode of its third season, February 5th, which was filmed inside the gates of Fort Campbell, KY during this past fall.

The week long production combined Hollywood magic with the military might of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), as the Screaming Eagle Soldiers from the 2nd Brigade Combat Team and 159th Combat Aviation Brigade became part of the show’s cast.

Maj. Gen. James C. McConville, commanding general of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) and Fort Campbell, Ky., shares a laugh with Tanner Foust, stunt driver and the host of Top Gear, during a break in shooting while filming an episode for the History Channel show at a Fort Campbell training area, Sept. 26. Foust challenged being captured by the 101st and its assets during a "cat and mouse" chase scenario and was impressed with the skills of the 101st units and their top gear.  (U.S. Army photo by Sgt.
