Air Force One, a VC-137C, a Boeing 707-353B, is depicted by a former United Airlines Boeing 720B-022, and carries the serial number 62-6001 (tail number 26001), one digit up from President John F. Kennedy's 62-6000 (tail number 26000), as if it was part of a two aircraft order. The actual serial 62-2601 was assigned to a Martin AGM-12 Bullpup missile. See more »
John Amos' character is listed in the credits as "Marine Corporal", and the reporter Damon, when surprised at how little security is at the desert military compound, refers to "one lousy corporal" guarding the gate.

I saw this on TV back in the 1970s, and again on video in the 1990s. It is a well-done political/mystery movie, a pleasant evening's diversion. The cast and plot are solid. I read Robert J. Serling's novel recently; the movie holds up well against the book.
