Helicopter Missions: EPISODE 3

The Taliban Gambit

They were volunteers, part of the only reserve rescue wing in the U.S. Air Force, a mere afterthought to many serving in Afghanistan. But when Taliban forces ambushed a covert, four-man Navy SEAL team high in the eastern Afghan mountains, this disregarded unit was called upon to save the day. They came prepared, riding one of the most sophisticated helicopters in the world, a toned-up version of the Blackhawk: The Pave Hawk. Witness this heroic rescue, where reservists showed the world, and themselves, what they're capable of when duty calls.
