Producer's description:

The Aircraft: On April 7, 2003 the 75th FS Capt. Kim Campbell deployed her A-10A to help provide close air support over Baghdad. Beginning the return flight her aircraft was struck by enemy fire destroying all hydraulics and most electrical circuits. Rather than bailing out and with the assistance of other pilots she managed to limp back to base. On landing there were no brakes or steering but Capt. Campbell managed to keep the A-10 from any further damage. This event earned Capt. Kim Campbell the nickname "Killer Chick".
