Storyline

Chappy Sinclair is called to gather together a mixed Soviet/U.S. strike force that will perform a surgical strike on a massively defended nuclear missile site in the Middle East. Chappy finds that getting the Soviet and U.S. Pilots to cooperate is only the most minor of his problems as he discovers someone in the Pentagon is actively sabotaging his mission. As they begin their assault, Chappy finds that a nuclear strike has been ordered should they fail, which will catch his forces on the ground next to ground zero.

Trivia

The death of Doug Masters in this film was retconned in Iron Eagle IV (1995) by having him ejecting and subsequently being locked away in a Russian prison for years. See more »

Goofs

The F-4 Phantom II fighter-bomber was shown as a single seat aircraft. F-4 Phantoms are two seat aircraft with the radar operator sitting behind the pilot. Therefore when the Russians landed in Israel for the mission, 4 officers should have climbed down from the aircraft instead of just 2. See more »

Far from anything remotely special, but just as good as its fair predecessor. The only relation between the two films is the Louis Gossett, Jr. character as he is called in to lead a group of pilots that are from the U.S. and the Soviet Union. Another one of those many films made in the 1980s to capitalize off the fear of the Cold War. The direction is mediocre and the screenplay is sophomoric. With that said some of the flying sequences are well-done and Gossett's performance is not bad at all. However he does look a lot more impressive with sub-par players around him. Never really wins its wings by the time it tries to fly. 2.5 out of 5 stars.
