The crew of a nuclear bomber attack the Soviet Union while the President of the United States tries desperately to regain control of his military after his helicopter crashes during a limited nuclear exchange in this film with a scenario similar to Fail-Safe (1964) and Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964). Originally a made for cable movie, it concentrates on the relationship between a veteran pilot and his female co-pilot and the president's attempt to wrest control away from a war-mongering successor.

The view of the aircraft carrier is reversed, as the angled deck is on the wrong side of the ship. Also, this makes the ship's hull number 18, which was the USS Wasp, not the USS Midway (CVB-41). If the image was not reversed, the hull number would be 81, which has not been built as of the year 2007. See more
Hell, most Soviet bombers are so old they still use propellers. The Minnesota Air National Guard could probably knock them down.
