After their cars crash on a desert highway in the middle of nowhere, two friends and a woman they both like must wait for someone to stop by and help them. Unfortunately, those who do stop turn out to be criminals, eccentrics or wackos.
The U.S. Government is willing to help any country that requires help in ridding themselves of drugs with support from the Army. Unfortunately, the drug cartels have countered that offer by hiring one of the best air-combat mercenaries and have armed him with a Scorpion attack helicopter. The army decides to send in its best people from its Apache Air Combat school. But first they have to be taught how to fly air-to-air combat missions Written by

The "Scorpion" attack helicopters are actually Hughes MD-500D Defenders See more »
During the final battle with Stoller, Jake and his Apache are directly behind Stoller's Scorpion. However, the impacts from the Hydra rockets are squarely on the side of the Scorpion if it were perpendicular to the Apache. See more »
Jake Preston (Nicolas Cage) is flying his Cobra attack helicopter against the drug cartel in South America. His group of Cobras and Blackhawks are attacked by a mercenary flying a Scorpion. The military decides to send more into the fight. Jake goes to Fort Mitchell to train in the Apache helicopter under Brad Little (Tommy Lee Jones). Brad wants to fly missions but he's deemed too valuable as a trainer. Billie Lee Guthrie (Sean Young) is Jake's ex training to fly reconnaissance. Jake is a confidential natural pilot but he struggles in the dark with left eye dominance.
This is trying to be Top Guns with helicopters. I like that part of the movie. Sean Young assembling a shoulder fired anti-aircraft missile is kind of cool. The aerial combat is slightly below the level of Top Guns. Tommy Lee is a great old guy. Sean Young is good but her relationship with Nicolas Cage is too overwrought. Cage is doing a simple one-note performance as the cocky flier. He is overdoing it Nicolas Cage style. I like seeing the helicopters but not so much the characters.
