Airship jet refueling does not exist. An Airship uses buoyancy (lighter than air) to fly. It is considerable slower than jet aircraft. The airship would also have to cope with the large change of weight during air refueling. It would have to release gas when it delivers a large amount of fuel. An airship would also be designed to be very aerodynamic, especially if it needs to fly as fast as a jet. All the externally visible structures would be inside to reduce aerodynamic drag. See more »

Now then, the plot may not be the best thing since sliced bread, but the special effects, soundtrack, acting, and videography are amazing. I almost got dizzy watching this movie, that how fast paced some of the dogfights are! All around great movie, but in all seriousness, you shouldn't watch it if your looking for any sense of Geo-political realism: its a movie and movies almost always have outrageously implausible scenarios.
A few loopholes in the plot and the occasional confusing plot turn are about as 'bad' as this movie gets. All in all, i'd say 8/10. Full marks for everything but the plot, which dragged it a little.
