Helicopter Missions (2008): S01E02 – White Out


Helicopter Missions (aka Helicopter Wars) is a 2008 history documentary hosted by Bill Ratner, published by Smithsonian Channel.


It was a deadly game of hide-and-seek, pitting a heavily concealed and armoured Iraqi tank against a British helicopter, in wide-open skies, with only a thin, aluminium fuselage for protection. The odds were against the Royal Air Force. Join us as the helicopter pilots of this storied Westland Lynx relive their mission to find and destroy the enemy before being destroyed themselves.
