The battle of the Ham Rong bridge was a resounding and unforgettable victory for the Vietnamese Air Force, during the brutally destructive American bombing of North Vietnam. A young, experienced team of DTU Silver Swallows Studio professionals have just released a trailer of their first short feature film “The First Swallow Wings”, the first episode in a series of Vietnam Aerial War films, already well-received by viewers.

This is the first time that this heroic moment in the history of Vietnam’s defense has been so vividly recreated, using the latest graphic technology, and it promises to leave a lasting impression on the Vietnamese movie industry this year.
The First Swallow Wings movie focuses on the brutal destruction caused by the American Air Force on North Vietnam, in their effort to block support from the north reaching the National Liberation Front in South Vietnam. The first battle took place at the Ham Rong Bridge in Thanh Hoa province.

At 1 pm on April 3rd, 1965, American squadrons penetrated Thanh Hoa airspace to destroy the Ham Rong Bridge, with some of the most advanced fighter jets in the world at that time. The trailer of The First Swallow Wings portrays the intense dogfight between the Vietnamese MiG-17s, nicknamed the Silver Swallows, and the more powerful and advanced F-105s, known as the Thunderchiefs.

In the ensuing, unequal battle, the Vietnamese crews were forced on using all their skills and courage to withstand the Americans. The spirit and emotions of the patriotic Vietnamese pilots, hovering on a line between life and death have now finally been depicted in this feature, fifty years later.

On their Fan Page, the Silver Swallows Studio explain their objectives and hopes:
- This is a not-for-profit project aimed at recreating Vietnamese Air Force battles on film.
- The film is apolitical, with the objective of reminding younger generations about the determination of the wartime soldiers to restore peace and independence to Vietnam, despite the overwhelming loss of lives and sacrifices involved.

The First Swallow Wings movie will open on the 44th anniversary of the Liberation of the South and National Reunification. The DTU team hope that many people will watch it so that a series of more historic films can then be expediently produced for national viewership.
