Sound recordist Duncan McEwan had just taken up the sport of skydiving the previous year, and was used to create the sound effects for the skydiving scene. All of the Foley work involving the use of the parachute gear was done with his personal rig. He also made one skydive with a recorder to record the sound of parachute opening, though the recording was not used. It was used, however, on CHiPs (1977) episode "Bomb Run", and was added to the MGM sound effects library. See more »

This film is just a long big chase scene and it's fine on those levels. Treat Williams is great in the lead and Kathryn Harrold is simply beautiful. Although it's doubtful that this film portrays what really happened to D.B. Cooper, it's quite enjoyable. My only problem with the movie is that there isn't much character development, but one of the best things about this movie is all of the beautiful scenery. From the green forests of Oregon to the raging rapids of Wyoming and to the isolated deserts of Arizona. It's all good and I suggest that anyone who can't find something to do for ninety minutes should watch this.
