INDISTINCT CHATTER

0:02:530:02:55

Attention.

0:02:550:02:57

At ease, gentlemen. Be seated, please.

0:03:000:03:02

As you've all probably noticed, we're currently headed north.

0:03:060:03:09

Tomorrow morning at 0500 hours,

0:03:090:03:11

we will be taking a position at Yankee Station.

0:03:110:03:15

We're back in business.

0:03:150:03:16

We'll be flying sorties over North Vietnam

0:03:160:03:19

to take out enemy supply lines,

0:03:190:03:21

which means we have to cross over into Laos.

0:03:210:03:24

This mission is classified.

0:03:240:03:27

No cards and letters to sweethearts.

0:03:270:03:30

No phone calls to family back home.

0:03:300:03:32

-Is that understood?

-TROOPS:

-Yes, sir.

0:03:320:03:35

-No-one can know.

-No-one except Charlie when we kick his ass.

0:03:350:03:39

CHUCKLING

0:03:390:03:41

'For survival in the jungle environment,

0:03:410:03:43

the smart soldier must understand

0:03:430:03:45

that nature is not a force against him.'

0:03:450:03:48

'He has to make nature work for him

0:03:480:03:51

by utilizing the ample natural provisions at his disposal.'

0:03:510:03:55

-Is this a double feature?

-LAUGHTER

0:03:550:03:59

-Just lean your head back and open your mouth.

-LAUGHTER

0:03:590:04:02

What is this?

0:04:020:04:04

Hell, the boys back home don't know anything about the jungle.

0:04:040:04:07

'In the jungle, your best friend is your knife.'

0:04:070:04:10

-Oh, look. Now he's getting serious.

-LAUGHTER

0:04:100:04:13

Oh. Uh-oh. Cut the leaf, man. Here it goes.

0:04:130:04:16

Come on, baby, cut. Cut. Oh!

0:04:160:04:19

LAUGHTER

0:04:190:04:21

Where's the salt and pepper shaker for that leaf? Chew it, boy!

0:04:210:04:25

-Chew it!

-LAUGHTER

0:04:250:04:27

Leaf good. Me like leaf. Good! Ooh!

0:04:270:04:31

'Maintain a constant state of readiness.'

0:04:310:04:33

What did he do? Sit in an ant hill? Look at him. Yay, yay, yay!

0:04:330:04:37

LAUGHTER

0:04:370:04:39

'And then, when the rescue helicopter appears, make sure...'

0:04:390:04:42

-Honestly, it's right above your head!

-LAUGHTER

0:04:420:04:45

-Jeez.

-WHISTLES

-Shake it, Pops.

0:04:450:04:50

He's got a nice ass for a sailor, I'll tell you that.

0:04:500:04:54

I don't mean that in a weird way.

0:04:540:04:58

God bless America.

0:04:580:05:00

'Are you a smart soldier?'

0:05:000:05:03

I thought we'd be assisting some South Vietnamese generals against

0:05:030:05:06

a few infiltrators. Whole thing would be done in three, four weeks.

0:05:060:05:10

-You picked the wrong time to enlist.

-I know.

0:05:100:05:12

No, but I just wanted to fly so badly, and everybody,

0:05:120:05:15

they were telling me all about the fantastic massage parlours,

0:05:150:05:18

go-go girls, everything, and...

0:05:180:05:20

And what did I get? Goddamn one night?

0:05:200:05:23

-One night in Saigon. That's me.

-That didn't go so well.

0:05:230:05:26

Gentlemen, next please.

0:05:260:05:28

OK. Hey, are there any mosquito nets?

0:05:290:05:32

-What you see is what you get.

-OK. OK. I see plastic.

0:05:320:05:36

-Yes, sir.

-I see plastic there and how about...

0:05:360:05:39

Um, are you able to give me two slices of that plastic, please?

0:05:390:05:43

Six foot by three foot, put a zipper in the middle,

0:05:430:05:45

-and I crawl inside.

-What you're describing is a sauna.

0:05:450:05:48

But it holds off the bugs.

0:05:480:05:49

Put some netting on it so I can breathe through at night time.

0:05:490:05:52

-You got it, sir.

-Yes?

-Absolutely, sir.

-OK.

0:05:520:05:55

Now, look here. Look at this. I have my boot on your table.

0:05:550:05:58

-Why do I have my boot on your table?

-I don't know, sir.

-OK, this is why.

0:05:580:06:02

Look at this.

0:06:020:06:04

Can you create a flap for me in the tongue here so I could hide

0:06:040:06:07

my American passport inside of here should I need it?

0:06:070:06:11

-Since you're my only customer today, it'd be my pleasure.

-Thank you.

0:06:110:06:16

So, Charlie got his shit together.

0:06:170:06:20

Now we have heavy anti-aircraft fire around Mu Gia Pass.

0:06:200:06:23

Change direction and altitude every seven seconds

0:06:230:06:27

so the radar of the enemy gun cannot lock onto you.

0:06:270:06:31

Your secondary target will be the intersection of 121 and 90.

0:06:310:06:35

-That's the Ho Chi Minh Trail.

-That's right, Spook, inside Laos.

0:06:350:06:39

Now, one more thing.

0:06:390:06:41

They've been using your radios to lure our rescue teams into ambush.

0:06:410:06:46

Now, don't get me wrong. You go down, you use that radio.

0:06:460:06:49

But if they're hot on your trail, you scrap it.

0:06:490:06:52

You scrap anything that they can use against you.

0:06:520:06:55

Now, this is Flight Lieutenant Dengler's first mission.

0:06:560:07:00

Yes, sir. CHEERING

0:07:000:07:02

You're gonna be Spook's wingman. You think you can handle that?

0:07:020:07:05

I could not ask for a better man, sir, but could I ask a question?

0:07:050:07:10

-Go ahead.

-You know, Spook is such a goddamn daredevil.

0:07:100:07:12

Could you please order him not to try too hard to die for his country,

0:07:120:07:17

but rather to let the son-of-a-bitch on the other side

0:07:170:07:20

die for his instead? LAUGHTER

0:07:200:07:22

OK. All right, boys.

0:07:220:07:24

-You all set?

-TROOPS: Yes, sir.

0:07:240:07:26

-Anything else?

-TROOPS:

-No, sir. OK. Let's go, go, go!

0:07:260:07:29

-RADIO:

-"Radar Kilo 619, position four."

0:07:290:07:34

"Radar Yankee, 67279, position two."

0:07:350:07:40

Heads against the wall. Come on. Come on, Diet.

0:07:400:07:43

This is what we'd do as kids when we were out for mischief.

0:07:430:07:45

It'd keep us out of trouble. But we'd usually pee right now.

0:07:450:07:48

-Can we pee?

-I don't really have to.

-I'm not gonna.

0:07:480:07:52

But this will keep us safe. OK, fellas?

0:07:520:07:54

Stay out of trouble. Come back in one piece. Good luck.

0:07:550:07:58

-Come back, boys.

-You, too.

0:07:580:08:00

-"Boys, get set to change the altitude again. On my mark."

-Roger.

0:08:410:08:43

"Gentlemen, do you notice the coastline down there?"

0:08:450:08:47

"Welcome to North Vietnam."

0:08:470:08:51

Looks pretty boring.

0:08:530:08:55

"Boys, we got too much cloud cover."

0:08:570:08:59

"Climbing again 280 west. We're heading into Laos."

0:08:590:09:02

"Target in sight."

0:09:060:09:09

-"Lessard, roll in."

-"Rolling."

So, there is a war.

There is a war.

0:36:070:36:09

All right. So, tell me about the peace talks, man. Geneva?

0:36:210:36:24

-There's gotta be peace talks, man.

-Shut up, Gene.

0:36:240:36:28

There's no conference. When will you get that through skull?

-Secret talks, man. I'm just talking about secret talks.

-Forget it.

0:36:310:36:35

-We're not getting out.

-No, no, no, there was a honcho on the outside.

0:36:350:36:38

He said I would not be here too long.

0:36:380:36:40

-They tell that to everyone to get them to sign.

-No, I did not sign.

No.

-Well, my friends,

0:36:520:36:54

you can rot in here if you like,

0:36:540:36:57

but I'm gonna scram this very night.

0:36:570:37:01

This hut, it ain't no prison.

0:37:010:37:04

Scram. I like that. I like that.

0:37:060:37:10

Listen, listen, my friend, you cannot escape.

0:37:100:37:14

If you try to escape, you'll screw up our release.

0:37:140:37:17

I don't give a shit about our release

0:37:170:37:19

or whatever you think will happen.

0:37:190:37:21

But without water, you won't survive more than two days out there.

0:37:210:37:26

And without water, your tracks will be visible for even more.

0:37:260:37:30

The jungle is the prison. Don't you get it?

Hey, when does the rainy season start?

0:37:370:37:40

Five months, maybe six.

0:37:400:37:43

I can't wait that long.

Hey, listen, let's say you do survive the jungle

0:37:460:37:49

0:37:490:37:53

0:42:190:42:25

There was no aviation at the time and I wanted to learn something useful

0:42:270:42:32

that would help me repair planes.

0:42:320:42:34

And, boy, are those years coming in handy in unexpected ways now.

There's only one brand that I cannot handle. That's Smith and Wesson.

0:42:470:42:49

0:42:490:42:53

Ah. But listen, everybody keep one cuff on a wrist at all times...

0:42:550:43:02

..so that if the guards come checking,

0:43:020:43:05

-we can put them on again quickly.

-No, they don't check us at night.

0:43:050:43:08

-They think we can't get out of these.

-They think it's impossible.

0:43:080:43:12

Show me how you did that.

0:43:120:43:14

It's so simple. OK.

0:43:140:43:18

All you do, insert the nail.

0:43:180:43:22

There's a cuff and a spring. They both have teeth.

You push down on the spring, disengage the teeth like that.

-Laotian.

-Laotian?

0:44:280:44:32

Oh.

0:47:510:47:54

I was five years old, or something, in a little town, Wildberg,

0:47:550:48:00

in the Black Forest and it was just bombed to ashes, you know?

0:48:000:48:05

No clear reason, just these senseless attacks.

0:48:050:48:07

But I remember I was in the attic with my brother.

0:48:070:48:13

We were looking out and we see this fighter plane,

0:48:150:48:21

beautiful, coming right at us.

0:48:210:48:25

And it's firing from its wings and I see the machine gun.

0:48:260:48:29

It's flashing and it goes flying past the house.

0:48:290:48:35

It's so close. I mean, it's feet away from the house.

0:48:350:48:40

And the canopy was open.

0:48:420:48:45

And this pilot, he had his goggles up on his helmet.

0:48:460:48:52

And I could see his eyes.

0:48:530:48:56

And he was looking at me.

0:48:560:48:58

Right at me.

0:48:580:49:00

He's looking right at me. And as he turns to go, he's starting back,

0:49:000:49:04

he's looking right at me still. And the thing is,

0:49:040:49:07

-Protein.

Oh, this is a good year, this one. Mmm.

0:55:110:55:14

Yeah, my favourite. So, listen, guys. Thank you so much.

0:55:140:55:19

And it is my birthday, yes, but I would like to give you some presents.

0:55:190:55:24

OK. Now, look.

0:55:240:55:27

I have taken these cartridge shells and I have made a knife of each one.

0:55:270:55:32

OK. Now, I'm sorry, but I have to keep one for myself. OK?

Ah, ah. Procet, it is yours.

-OK.

-I don't care about the knife. This is for Crazy Horse.

0:56:030:56:06

No, no, no. Crazy Horse is mine.

0:56:060:56:08

-My Crazy Horse. Mine.

-Ah!

0:56:080:56:11

Now listen, we must collect the rice and hide it.

0:56:120:56:17

But we must dry it because it rots too quickly if we don't dry it, OK?

0:56:180:56:21

-What? Hide it? You wanna hide it?

-Yeah, yeah.

-We can eat it now.

0:56:210:56:24

-No, no.

-We eat it now.

-Look, look, look.

0:56:240:56:27

I've created a secret compartment here for the rice.

0:56:270:56:30

It is at the bottom of my crap container.

0:56:300:56:33

-So I don't think the guards are gonna want to check that.

-Crazy.

0:56:330:56:37

Why are you hiding it now?

0:56:370:56:40

For our escape.

0:56:400:56:42

-You have a plan.

-Yes.

0:56:440:56:47

Now, have you noticed that the guards,

0:56:480:56:51

when they're called to the kitchen hut for chow time,

0:56:510:56:54

they always leave their rifles behind, always?

0:56:540:56:56

So we have a few minutes before they return for their rifles.

0:56:560:57:00

-We go out through the hut, we grab their guns, we surprise them.

-No.

0:57:000:57:05

-No, listen. We surprise them.

-Crazy.

-We surround them, OK?

0:57:050:57:09

Then we take the guards as prisoners.

0:57:090:57:13

We take over the camp. Think about it, OK?

We hold it down for a few days until we can signal our aircraft...

-Yeah.

-That's right. So, you were busy getting your machetes

1:19:531:19:57

and your nice shoes while we were being shot at. OK.

1:19:571:20:00

Where was this rifle? Where did you find this rifle?

1:20:001:20:03

-Where'd you get that?

-Where am I gonna go?

1:20:031:20:06

I don't know where you're gonna go. Where'd you get the rifle?

1:20:061:20:09

Or did you just find that? You just found it lying around?

1:20:091:20:12

-We found it.

-OK, listen, that's it.

1:20:121:20:15

Listen, I have an ammo clip for you.

1:20:151:20:19

My ammo clip for your machete. Oh, yeah.

1:20:191:20:23

LAUGHS Oh, that's funny?

1:20:231:20:26

-Why is that funny?

-Cos I was just thinking

1:20:261:20:30

maybe you'll go back and get one yourself.

1:20:301:20:34

-Maybe I'll go back and get one myself? OK.

-Yeah.

1:20:341:20:37

-OK.

-Happy now? You got to do your big plan.

1:20:371:20:40

Yes!

1:20:401:20:41

Yeah, I bet you're happy.

1:20:411:20:43

You hand me that machete.

1:20:501:20:53

-You hand me that machete.

-You tell me where to go.

1:20:531:20:56

-Please.

-You tell me where to go. Huh?

1:20:581:21:02

-Huh?

-I don't know where you can go.

1:21:021:21:04

I didn't think so.

-What's that? What's that?

1:21:141:21:18

Yeah, Dieter? Is that where you're going?

1:21:181:21:22

See you, Duane. Duane, love you, brother.

1:21:221:21:25

You go that way, I'll go this way.

Down there must be a river.

1:23:491:23:52

It must lead to the Big Muddy.

1:23:521:23:54

And then we'll be out of here.

1:23:541:23:57

We'll build a raft, and we can float all the way down to it.

1:23:571:24:00

No-one will see us. Then we can cross over into Thailand.

That's a trick question, right?

1:30:081:30:11

We can trade off with this thing.

1:30:181:30:21

There's no way that we shoot it out with the Vietcong

1:30:221:30:25

if we run into them, so...

1:30:251:30:27

And we can't use these for hunting because of the noise.

1:30:271:30:31

You wanna ditch 'em?

1:30:341:30:37

1:33:291:33:33

When we reach the Big Muddy, we'll make it across,

1:33:331:33:36

and I'm sure we're gonna run right into an American officers' club.
