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?
Some of the "Libyan" soldiers at the airbase where Doug's are rescued from, are using the Swedish 9mm SMG m/45. Originally developed during WWII. Still in use - but in very small numbers nowadays - within the Swedish Armed Forces. It has also served in US Special Forces as a very simple, easy handled and very reliable SMG. Some period also manufactured on license in Egypt. That's why the "Libyan" soldiers are using it. See more
When standing outside Chappy's trailer, Doug mentions all the different weapons systems that he could have the F16's armed with. He says "all the 30 millimeter rounds the G-pod can carry". The F16 is armed with the M61 Vulcan cannon which fires 20mm rounds, not 30mm. The General Electric "G-Pod" was an externally-mounted cannon which was briefly tested on the F-16, but did not see widespread operational usage. See more
