Ended up in a production race with Terminal Velocity (1994) to reach theaters first; when the other film was ready for a September release, Paramount took some extra filming time to have this one ready for a prime holiday season release instead. See more »
The shot when we see Selkirk deploy his canopy that malfunctions is obviously reversed. He deploys with his left hand instead of his right and his cut-away pillow and reserve handle or on opposite sides to the correct position. See more »

I watch this movie at least once a month, just for "the adreneline rush". Sometimes, as often as needed! Wesley really pushes to the edge in this one.
The entire cast were excellent! Including Mr. Busey, of course.
The writers and casters of the movie did really well with little details, like turf fights, base not on race, but on the fact that "you are not welcome here". Then there was "The Title On The Book" Wesley was reading while flying on the jetliner.
He didn't get the girl, but he did achieve more mile stones in the movie world for all of us, as one people.
