A programmer who's working with the secret EWS computer system at a military air force base is threaten by foreign agents, along with his family. His only chance of rescue seems to be the war veteran Haglund who is a leader of a special taskforce. Written by
The Swedish Air Force made two demands of the filmmakers in return for the loan of the six JAS 39 Gripen Fighter jets. The First was that all aerial photography would be granted for use in commercials by the Air Force free of charge. The second was that one of the military characters was a female and that she had a substantial role, because the Air Force wants more women to apply for service. See more »

As an employee of the Swedish Air Force I enjoyed the nice Gripen and Hkp 9 (MBB Bo 105) flight scenes in this movie. One of the few disappointments was the EWS 39 jammer pod, in this case an inert Rb 75 (Maverick) missile painted black with the letters "EWS 39" in white along the side. Real jammer pods definitely do not look like that, at least not the ones I've seen.
But apart from that, it's an entertaining movie with a very amusing ending (the last minute). Anyone interested in seeing various Swedish military units, including the now-legendary SSG, on film should see this one.
