Synopsis:
Over ten years in the making, 'Wings Over Vietnam' is the most detailed and comprehensive account of the Vietnam air war ever produced. Featuring rare combat film, 'Wings Over Vietnam' offers a thorough review of the evolving aerial strategies and tactics used by America during the war. It also brings individual combat missions and dogfights vividly to life with first hand accounts of veterans - including John McCain - and graphic air-to-air and through the gun sight footage. 'Wings Over Vietnam' takes you out hunting enemy SAM missiles on 'Wild Weasel' missions, and dog-fighting in F-4 Phantoms against MiG-17's and 21's over North Vietnam.
It puts you in the pilot's seat for raids by F-105 Thunderchiefs and A4 Skyhawks as part of Operation Rolling Thunder - flying through the most formidable anti-aircraft defences on earth, - and takes you out on night missions with the F-111 's and giant B-52's of Operation Linebacker 2. This critically acclaimed Discovery series also demonstrates the awesome firepower of the AC-47 "Spookies" and AC-130 "Spectres" and pays tribute to the men flying the most dangerous air missions of the war - the crews of the Sikorsky "Green Giant" helicopters and the Bell Huey Medivac chopper crews.
