Storyline

A top US Air Force fighter pilot decides that his call sign of Black Angel means that he's a messenger of God. Freely committing murders as he goes, he steals a nuclear weapon and his plane. Taking a family hostage to help him, he works on bypassing the bomb's security lockouts so he can use it on the most sinful of American cities. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

Gordon tells Gaiter, at gunpoint, to change the serial number on his BDU in the computer to "AF-463908-SW," but we see on her screen a pop-up dialog showing it being changed from "AF25828-BDU" to "AF46398-BDU." Meanwhile, in the background window of her screen, highlighting and out-of-sequence serial numbers seem to show that "AF25828-BDU" and "AF46398-SW" have been interchanged. See more »
