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 computer map of Central and Eastern Europe, as shown on the great display (ca. 7:55) has at least three errors. First, the central part of the map (including Poland, Czechoslovakia and Austria) is somewhat squished and out-of-proportions (most notably, it caused Warsaw to move significantly south from its actual position, and both Poland and Austria's borders are visibly different from their actual shapes). Second, and probably the most glaring error, is that according to that map, distance from Warsaw to Berlin and from Warsaw to Moscow is roughly the same; this locates Moscow somewhere in midwestern Belarus (!), as the distance from Warsaw to Moscow is at least 2.5 times bigger than from Warsaw to Berlin. A minor error is that Russian (now Ukrainian) city of Kharkov is misspelled as "Kharov". See more
Hell, most Soviet bombers are so old they still use propellers. The Minnesota Air National Guard could probably knock them down.
Well, do you want to get on the phone and order them into the air, Colonel, because every transistor in Minnesota is BURNED OUT!
