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

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

Now look, let me clue you in on something right now. I've given this country 22 damn, fucking years of my life. Twenty two years! I've seen young boys blown out of the air, over the Pacific. I've seen their guts sprawled all over the rice paddies in Vietnam, so whenever somebody dies for this country, believe me boy,
I give a shit! Goddamnit, nobody talks to me like this and I'm not about to start now! You want...
