"The Misty Experiment: The Secret Battle For The Ho Chi Minh Trail" is a hour-long documentary about a special U.S. Air Force squadron whose pilots volunteered for one of the Vietnam War's most dangerous air missions. Their assignment: search for enemy supply transports and anti-aircraft installations concealed within the web of trail paths and waterways collectively known as the Ho Chi Minh Trail.
The squadron also directed on-site rescue operations for U.S. and allied aircrews shot down while flying over the jungles of North Vietnam and Laos.
