Did You Know?

The flight of four aircraft referred to as the "cavalry" are uncredited in the movie, but are a group of aviators flying Nanchang CJ-6As from Northern California. The clip appears to be have been filmed during the 2011 Fleet Week Airshow over the San Francisco Bay.See more »
Factual errors: The Captain is told that all the old military aircraft that can be made to fly are coming to attack the alien ships, but what is shown is a formation of four civilian sport aerobatic aircraft, still showing smoke, obviously taken from another film source. The four aircraft aren't even American, all four being Russian-made Yak aerobatic planes.See more »
