The paratrooper is the elite element of any army, The 'para' is handpicked, formidable and highly trained, using the element of surprise in his attack. He is generally outnumbered in the field, relying on his personal skill and courage to succeed.

On 4th May 1978, the South African Defence Force carried out its first ever completely airborne combat mission onto the town of Cassinga.

At that period in time, Cassinga was the northern headquarters of the South West African Peoples Organisation (SWAPO), and was situated 250km inside Angola.

This documentary revisits the action and recounts some of the personal experiences of paratroopers who took part in the action.
