There Is A Way

With F-105 losses mounting, 469th TFS Thud pilot Capt. Tony Gangol started saying after each mission, "There ain't no way" (meaning there was no way to complete a tour). The use of the phrase spread among F-105 pilots. At the prompting of the 469th TFS commander, the Air Force sent cameramen to record F-105 missions and personnel at Korat, Thailand. They used the footage to make a movie called There Is A Way, which showed pilots completing 100-mission tours and gave an excellent view of what life was like there.
