There is a Way: The 421st Squadron Fighting Cavaliers and their F-105 Thunderchiefs (Color, 1966, 55:00) Digitally restored color Without doubt this is the best documentary showing an Air Force unit from the Vietnam War. Filmed in November, 1966, this up close and personal look at the 421st Sq, 388th TFW has everything from exciting footage of a bombing raid on Hanoi, dodging SAMs and fighting Migs, to feverish overnight activity to repair and rearm the big "Thuds"at their base at Korat, Thailand. Best of all, its told through spontaneous interviews and open mics that capture air combat radio chatter, after mission pilot stories, and conversations with everyone from the base commander to pilots and mechanics. You'll see mission briefings and after action intelligence debriefings. Veteran pilots coach newbies on fighter tactics. The maintenance chief talks about the Thuds reliability. A pilot's best day: knocking out four SAM sites on a "Wild Weasel" mission. The squadron gets together after hours to celebrate a young Lieutenant's 100th mission. An amazing time capsule!

The Twenty Five Hour Day: A story of Air Force F-105s (Color, 1967, 28:00) This film, produced by Fairchild-Hiller-Republic for the US Air Force, offers a unique look inside F-105 “Thunderchief” fighter-bomber operations when the air campaign against North Vietnamese supply lines was ramping up into to high gear. Secretary of State Robert McNamara gives the broad outline of the Thud's primary mission in a series of strategic briefings: to strangle the Ho Chi Minh Trail, the strategic supply line from North to South Vietnam, through Cambodia and Laos, that was showing a quantum increase in activity and importance. You'll see exciting color footage of F-105s and other aircraft hitting bridges, supply depots convoys and other key targets along the Trail, and carrying out tactical operations in the South in conjunction with air mobile units. You'll see F -105 mission briefings, base operations, midair refueling, maintenance, and up close scenes of everyday pilot life on an extremely active forward base, working “Twenty-Five Hour Days.”

Faces of Rescue (Color,1967, 25:00) F-105 flight leader Lt. James Devoss tells the dramatic account of his rescue, severely injured, from enemy held jungle. You'll hear the story of his last mission from takeoff through pickup by a CH-3 "Jolly Green Giant" helicopter after being shot down, including actual footage. You'll also see all aspects of a well planned and executed "search and rescue" operation that saved so many lives in Vietnam.
