Watched it a couple of days ago. A fascinating documentary I thought. Big kudos to the Vietnamese Chinook pilot who ditched his helo alongside the US frigate. Balls of steel.

Really good prog, tho for the life of me I can't figure why the chinny pilot would take his flying overalls off,it was obvious who he was when picked up so why endanger his life doing that in the hover!

Haven't seen it all yet, but didn't he have gold bars sewn into it?

I got the impression more that he was worried about the flight suit weighing him down in the water.
