Synopsis

Documentary using rare archive footage to examine the disastrous American war in Vietnam, and the reliance on the Bell UH-1 helicopter, or 'Huey', to increase troop mobility in a forbidding jungle environment. With thousands of the Huey helicopters deployed in Vietnam, they took on roles from troop transport and medical evacuation, to gunship escort duties.
