The First Air Commando Group’s combat helicopter rescue.

The History Guy remembers the first combat helicopter rescue and the Sikorsky R-4b in the China/Burma/India theater. The practical use of rotary aircraft came sooner than many people realize. Pushing the new technology to its very limit, one pilot undertakes a dangerous mission to save comrades lost far behind enemy lines.
