Storyline

While test flying a stealth-fighter with a new Virtual-Reality control circuit somewhere over Turkey, Capt. Christopher Winfield encounters problems and must eject from the plane, that subsequently crashes. Capt. Winfield must follow the two remaining stealth-fighters home to the US in the cargo-bay of a transport-plane flown by Maj. Janet Morgan for a court martial. A group of terrorists led by a man called Phillips are very interested in the planes and try to high-jack one in mid-air, thus forcing Capt. Winfield to go into action. Written by Rene Boe Soerensen <rene@iesd.auc.dk>

Goofs

The aerial refueling boom through which the hijackers "slide" into the C-5 are in actuality less than 12" in diameter and when connected are connected to a fuel line, not a huge dry bay area as shown. See more »

"Die Hard" on a C-5 Galaxy
11 June 1999 | by (Maryland) – See all my reviews

That's about it.

Okay, okay. The plot, such as it is, goes like this: Our hero is a USAF pilot testing a "Virtual Reality" helmet in an F-117 over Turkey. It fails, and he barely has time to bail out before his plane crashes. Disgraced, he's sent home packing, along with the two remaining VR F-117 prototypes.

Why are they testing it over Turkey? Why not Area 51? Why not *anywhere* in the United States? Because the long flight home means that the terrorists, led by "Das Boot" kapitan Jurgen Prochnow, can board through an air-to-air refueling line (!) and make a grab for the remaining two planes.

You can figure out the rest. Our hero must sneak around the conveniently large ductwork of the C-5 transport, offing terrorists one by one, while the love interest ('scuse me, the C-5's pilot) keeps trying to kick bad guys out of her cockpit and call on the radio for help.

There's absolutely nothing innovative about this movie in the slightest. The action is mundane, the characters are cardboard, and the technical goofs are legion. Watch it only if you feel like having an "MST3K" party at your house.

Or rent "Air Force One" and have a double-feature.
