Film details


Set during the Vietnam war on an aircraft carrier in 1972. Not allowed to carry out attacks on Hanoi or other significant targets during the Paris peace talks, the Officers have to maintain discipline and morale, among the troops who have to carry out a series of seemingly pointless bombing missions over unimportant North Vietnamese targets. They lose some of their comrades and after one such mission two of the pilots decide to make their friends' death mean something and they decide to carry out an unauthorised low-level attack on the heart of Hanoi.
