Actual Marine aircraft were used in this film. KC 130 R and F models from Marine Aerial Refueling Squadron VMGR 352 were filmed taxiing on runways and having coffins removed from them. Active duty Marines from the base were also used to depict Marines marching in columns that were returning from Vietnam. The F model aircraft used in the film actually flew many missions during the Vietnam conflict. See more »
The captain can be seen breathing after he is supposedly killed at the end of the film. See more »

One of the finest made for network TV movies ever made
Gripping war drama with a fine performance by Brad Davis. Ranks with many of the best of the Vietnam movie genre (Platoon, Go Tell The Spartans, Gardens of Stone, etc.). Could have easily been a theatrical release.
