Goofs

The 'rocket pods' on the H-6 T.C. steals from the Marines wouldn't work. Not only are the fins deployed (the fins on military rockets deploy after firing) but instead of being in pods the rockets are seemingly held together by a wire frame so if T.C. actually attempted to fire them either the whole pod would come off or they would immediately explode.

Unquestionably one of the best episode of Magnum
4 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There seem to be two different kinds of episodes of Magnum PI; the ones where he comedically seems to bumble his way through the case he's hired to solve, enduring ridicule from Higgins and having to cajole favors out of Rick and TC...and ones like this. The episodes where Magnum shows the will, cunning, and the strength you'd expect of a SEAL who had seen combat in Vietnam. And not coincidentally, these episodes seem to refer to his days in Vietnam.

"Did You See the Sun Rise?" is of the latter category, and is a powerful episode that reveals and admirable and ruthless character in Thomas Magnum. Without question one of the best.
