When Doug's father, an Air Force Pilot, is shot down by MiGs belonging to a radical Middle Eastern state, no one seems able to get him out. Doug finds Chappy, an Air Force Colonel who is intrigued by the idea of sending in two fighters piloted by himself and Doug to rescue Doug's father after bombing the MiG base. Their only problems: Borrowing two fighters, getting them from California to the Mediteranean without anyone noticing, and Doug's inability to hit anything unless he has music playing. Then come the minor problems of the state's air defenses. Written by

Did You Know?
All of the fighter aircraft used (F-16 fighters; plus, F-21/C-2 Kfir fighters depicting enemy MiGs) are actually Israeli Air Force aircraft, repainted with the USAF symbol and a fictitious enemy symbol. See more
All aircraft used in the movie are not USAF F-16s, they are in fact Israeli AF aircraft. Their camouflage was not repainted, but their roundels were. In fact you can see patches of paint where US markings were painted over IAF markings, and where Stars Of David roundels were painted over. In addition, there are too many Stars and Bars US Military symbols on the -16s. There should only be four. One on the Top of the L wing, one on the bottom of the R wing, and two on the rear top of the fuselage between the wing and horizontal stabilizer. The F-16s in the movie carry six, one on both L and R top and bottoms of the wings. See more
And shut down that music!
It'll screw up my rhythm.
If you don't shut it down, I'll screw up somethin' else!
