Helicopter Missions: EPISODE 2

White Out

1982. The Falklands War. Three Westland Wessex helicopters drop Special Forces troops into the icy heart of South Georgia for a sneak attack on Argentinian forces. But the surprise is on them when plummeting temperatures and hurricane-force winds force the mission to be aborted. The three helicopters head back to rescue the troops, facing a driving snow that has them literally flying blind. When two choppers crash, it's up to an old, single-engine workhorse known as Humphrey, a chopper built for four, to somehow carry 16 men to safety.
