Filled with incredible air-to-air footage, this DVD includes two fascinating films that document U.S. Air Force F-105 Thunderchief missions and operations in Vietnam.
The Twenty Five Hour Day - A Story of Air Force F-105s follows a Thunderchief mission to cut Viet Cong supply lines from briefing through takeoff, aerial refueling, the bombing run and return... and a subsequent rescue by an HH-3 Jolly Green Giant!
You also get 1967's There Is a Way, which documents F-105 operations and the daily life of 388th Tactical Fighter Wing pilots at Korat Royal Thai Air Force Base. You'll see interviews with pilots who completed 100 missions, a pre-flight briefing, aerial views of the base, and Thuds on the flightline and in the air, including a combat mission over North Vietnam during which an F-105 takes heavy flak before dropping its bombs. You'll even meet "Roscoe," the 34th Tactical Fighter Squadron's mangy mascot.
