In 1966, the tide of the air war above North Vietnam is turning against the United States. F-105 Thunderchiefs, and the elite fighter pilots who fly them, are being slaughtered. To destroy the greatest array of sophisticated anti-aircraft weapons ever assembled, the Pentagon creates the Wild Weasel. The mission of Lt. Colonel Mack MacLendon?s 357th Tactical Fighter Squadron is to fly these technological demons straight into the teeth of North Vietnam?s deadly air defenses and destroy the SAMs and Soviet MiGs that have killed their friends, and now seek their death.
