(U.S.A., A dying Vietnam vet, memories of an unpopular war, and a man’s promise add up to an unexpected final journey for one scuttled F-105 Thunderchief aircraft, affectionately known as Thud. When Tulsa resident Clark Wiens discovers that his beloved brother-in-law Bill has only months to live, he forms a plan to track down his old plane and move it to the former Air Force pilot’s hometown of Centralia, Illinois, where it will stand in a park as a long-awaited public monument to the sacrifice of Vietnam veterans. The project becomes both more difficult and more rewarding than Clark had originally envisioned. DCP video.
