Storyline

While test flying a stealth-fighter with a new Virtual-Reality control system somewhere over Turkey, Capt. Christopher Winfield encounters problems and must eject from the plane, which subsequently crashes. Capt. Winfield must follow two remaining stealth fighters home to the US in the cargo-bay of a transport-plane flown by Maj. Janet Morgan. There he expects to be court-martialed. A group of terrorists led by a man called Phillips try to high-jack the planes in mid-air, forcing Capt. Winfield to go into action. Written by Rene Boe Soerensen <rene@iesd.auc.dk>

Goofs

The F-117A was never designed for dog fighting and carried no Sidewinder Infra-red seeking missiles (typically used in a dog fight). Instead it would have carried AGM-65 Mavericks or AARAM's. See more »

Best comedy of the early 90's
16 June 2004 | by ralphb-3See all my reviews

In reality this is a fun movie. It is a simple good guy vs bad guy story. During the story you learn just how bad the "evil" guys are. By the final scene you can find yourself cheering the good guys.

On the other hand,

If you have any knowledge of military aircraft you must suspend a "lot" of disbelief. I was in the U.S. Air Force and stationed at Dover AFB at the time this movie came out. For those that don't know, Dover AFB is the home of 48 C-5 Galaxy's. When this move was released it ran in our break room nonstop for two weeks. In spite of all the jeers about the errors in the aircraft we still found ourself clapping at the end of the movie. I only wish it was my aircraft that was blown up (70-00452)

In the end I don't really view this movie to be a military film, but rather a story of a hero overcoming adversity. The setting of a military aircraft just makes it a convenient way to tell which side is which.
