In this SOFREP exclusive interview, we sat down with Keith Nell, the Rhodesian Special Air Service operator who was assigned to hunt down and eliminate the terrorists responsible for what has been called “Rhodesia’s 9/11.” By 1978, the Rhodesian Bush War between ZIPRA and ZANLA communist terrorists had terrorized the local villages in the area. Keith Nell begins the interview speaking about flight RH 825 that was shot down by an SA-7. He was assigned to train the indigenous fighters and hunt down the SA-7 gang responsible for two plane crashes. Watch the interview to hear a real-life story of tragedy, terrorism, mutiny, and heroism from one of the SAS operators who lived it.
