This video is divided into three parts. Part one is narrated and follows a B-52 crew based at Utapao Air Base in Thailand. There are interviews with the crew and they are shown in an operational debriefing. Also seen is MACV at Tan Son Nhut Air Base, where B-52 targets are selected.

Part two is not narrated (captions) and covers crew boardings, B-52D departures and returns, reception for 100 mission pilot, bomb handling and loading activities, duties of ground crew in preparation for aircraft departure, and gathering of drag chutes at end of runway. Unit is the 307th Strategic Wing.

Part three is a short narrated segment focusing on Operation Linebacker II, launching of B-52s against Hanoi, N. Vietnam in an attempt to break the deadlock at Paris peace talks.

Footage of Airbase in Thailand taken in 1969. Super 8 film was transferred to digital by Texas Archive of the Moving Image (TAMI), Austin, Texas. Aircraft were used in direct support of the war in Vietnam. Preserving the memories of all of those who served with the 4258 Strategic Wing and those who came to the base TDY.
