On April 2nd, 1972, an American B-66 “Destroyer” was shot down by a surface to air missile in the skies over South Vietnam. The only crew member to eject was U.S. Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Iceal Hambleton. A rescue helicopter was immediately dispatched to pick up the downed pilot, but no one knew at the time that Hambleton had landed in the middle of what turned out to be the most powerful offensive of the North Vietnamese Army during the war. And, of course, at the time nobody knew that his rescue would take 12 long days and become not only the most intense and, in every sense, most expensive rescue operation in U.S. Air Force history, but would also raise the uncomfortable question, "Is there a price on human life?"
