Storyline

In July 1966, North Vietnam's fleet of MiG-21s is hammering the US Air Force, and the embattled men of the 8th Tactical Fighter Wing need a hero to whip them into shape. Enter Colonel Robin Olds, a WWII veteran airman, who charges in and commands respect. With the help of his pilots, Olds masterminds Operation BOLO; a death-defying bait-and-switch tactic that he hopes will whip out the MiGs once and for all. Then on January 2, 1967, Olds and his men provoke a ferocious dogfight and attempt to change the course of the Vietnam War. Written by Anonymous

Interesting concept, but very poor wardrobe work
3 April 2014 | by jagreen70See all my reviews

Overall a good effort but it is obvious that the makers of this TV show really did not do their homework on U.S. Air Force uniforms and general appearance during the Vietnam War. The actor portraying Olds at times has a slovenly appearance, wears his hat indoors and not in the proper way, and some of his uniforms (and others) were not even of the type worn at that time. The military is very detail orientated and personal appearance is highly stressed and this portrayal is not flattering to Olds and his pilots. On the other hand, they did seem to have done their homework on the aircraft and tactics used at the time. So these scenes are well done and interesting to watch. The interviews with the actual pilots are also well done and contribute to the storyline. But again, these good aspects of the show are dragged down by the poor appearance of Olds and his men. This made it difficult for me to "get into" the story and feel I was watching an accurate portrayal of Olds and his pilots. The producers of this program need to pay more attention to this.
