Big Picture: Flying Soldiers

DVD Copied by Timothy Vollmer. "Flying Soldiers" is a documentary film which dramatically presents the story of Army aviation. Viewers will see everything from a foot soldier to an Honest John missile. A simulated battle is staged for the cameras in which fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters rush vitally needed soldiers to the front. Also seen in this episode is the latest in Army aircraft -- the revolutionary "Tilt-Wing," the Caribou, and the Mohawk. Today Army aviation is more than a new weapon. It multiplies the effectiveness of every new weapon we have now, and those we will have in the future. As pointed out in this THE BIG PICTURE release, today's Army must take to the air, which has no mud holes or traffic jams, no road blocks or narrow bridges. This is not the air 20,000 feet up or even 2,000 feet, but the air just above the treetops -- or better yet, in between the trees.
