When the Black Tiger commandos get in the helicopter at the beginning of the mission, Major Booker (Chuck Norris) enters the front of the helicopter and sits in the right hand seat. US military helicopter pilot in command fly from the right hand seat. If Major Booker had sat in the front of the helicopter he would have sat in the left hand seat however, sitting in the front seat would not allow an easy tactical egress at the Landing Zone so he probably would have sat in the rear with his squad.

Good Guys Wear Black (1978) was one of Chuck Norris's first starring roles. Norris plays John T. Booker, a C.I.A. who is sent on a mission to rescue American P.O.W.s in Vietnam, but during the mission, he and his men are attacked and find that no Americans were at the Vietnamese camp. After Booker and the remaining soldiers just barely escape, they find out that their team, The Black Tigers, were set up. After a long walk home, the C.I.A.s are turning up dead and John T. Booker is the last one alive, and no one can help him but a lawyer named Margret. This film was made in 1977, but wasn't released until a year or two later. The action is decent, espiecially two scenes, one that takes place at a ski resort, and another at an airport where Chuck Norris fights this Japanese assassin. Overall, a decent 1970's action movie with bad acting and a really bad 70's sounding soundtrack.
