Suicide Missions – Forward Air Controllers

The OBA and several members both assisted in the production of this show and also are interviewed in it! The show’s description reads: “During the Vietnam War, Air Force and Marine pilots flew “low and slow” over jungles in antiquated propeller planes–often unarmed–to direct jet bombers toward target. FACs often became victims of enemy ground fire as they carried out their dangerous missions. Meet some of the brave pilots, including the man who saved BAT-21.
