Storyline

Three years after Hank Thomas was thrown out of the air force because his best friend was killed in a military experiment/exercise led by Major Carson who caused the crash of TWA flight 800, he is approached by a group of CIA agents led by Harold Peters and Sharon Williams and Carson. They tell him that a microwave beam weapon killed his friend and those on TWA flight 800 and has now been attached to a super-sonic fighter plane called the Flacon. The falcon project has just been canceled by the military and the company that built it plans to steal it from its base at Area 51 and then sell it to the Chinese for $10 billion and that they need Hank's help to steal the plane and fly it to Alaska to have it dismantled before the company steals it. Hank and the CIA agents are secretly parachuted into Area 51 and in a gun battle get to the Falcon's hanger and steal it. But soon the Air Force is in pursuit as the plane makes its way to Alaska and events make Hank realize that the four CIA ... Written by timdalton007

Some secrets are not really secret.
2 January 2004 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

An ex-fighter pilot(Dale Midkiff)uncovers a military conspiracy after he is asked by the U.S. Government to steal a supersonic plane carrying a very deadly secret weapon. Little real action. No thrills. Mediocre special effects. Far fetched Sci-Fi. Most characters are over acted. A bad imitation of a good movie. The cast also includes: Cliff Robertson, William Shatner, Judd Nelson and Jennifer Rubin. Question: Does Midkiff actually report to the IRS that he is an actor?
