The Hughes 369HS flown by Hagman's character was destroyed in a collision with an aerial cableway on 17th April 1982. Sadly, three of the four people on board were killed: one was the aircraft's owner, Glenn Miller (who appears in the film as the truck driver Pocahontas Pete). It is unknown whether the accident occurred during filming. See more »
During the initial helicopter pursuit, Sam remarks (of the heli he is chasing) "all its numbers have been painted out". But the registration number on the underside is clearly visible in several shots. See more »
Although I agree this is a fun movie to watch we should give credit to the movie it is a almost direct copy of "Birds of Prey" with David Jansen, which was done in 1973. The same helicopters are used, a Hughes 500 and an Alouette with basically the same story line but I feel the acting was better in BOP. That said,I really did enjoy the movie especially the scenery and the flying. I enjoyed Hagman much more in this than Dallas. Also the visit to the old Pima Air museum brought back many memories A I live in Peonix for a whle. These were the days when flying was still fun and not regulated as much as now. I still have to highly recommend this movie for any helicopter buff.
