South Vietnamese Airforce Major Bung-Ly narrowly escapes being shot down as he takes off from Con Son Island in his little Cessna Bird Dog. The plane is too heavy to fly for long because his five young children and wife are on board. The invasion of enemies from North Vietnam makes it impossible for him to stay in his beloved country. Brave Bung-Ly loads his terrified wife and children on to the little Bird Dog and desperately heads out to sea, not knowing where he will land, or if there will be a place for him to take his family.
Out at sea is the gigantic aircraft carrier, the USS Midway. Bung-Ly spots the ship in the distance, but when he gets closer he sees that its decks are crowded with equipment, helicopters, and hundreds of people. There is no room for him to land his airplane. How will this story end for brave Major Bung-Ly and his family?
This true story is one of the amazing tales of heroism and sacrifice from from the Vietnam War.
