A Navy navigator is shot down over enemy territory and is ruthlessly pursued by a secret police enforcer and the opposing troops. Meanwhile his commanding officer goes against orders in an attempt to rescue him.
Fighter navigator Chris Burnett wants out: he was looking for something more than the boring recon missions he's been flying. He finds himself flying the lone Christmas day mission over war-torn Bosnia. But when he talks pilot Stackhouse into flying slightly off-course to check out an interesting target, the two get shot down. Burnett is soon alone, trying to outrun a pursuing army, while commanding officer Reigert finds his rescue operation hamstrung by politics, forcing Burnett to run far out of his way.Written by

For one scene, the crew made the ice by pouring three to four tons of molten wax over a wooden platform. See more »
In the ejection scene when the chute deploys and the camera is looking up, it shows a round canopy deploying. The camera then cuts to both chutes deploying and they are both RAM air (square) canopies. See more »
Capt. Rodway, USMC:
We each have our jobs. Now I'm a Marine. That means I do the serious work. You're a Navy Pilot. That means that you sit here and... eat jello.

The UK theatrical version had one dialogue substitution (removal of a single use of the word "fuck") to secure the "12" rating. For the DVD/video release, this substitution was waived by the BBFC. See more »
As a Serb it was very interesting for me to watch this movie. And it's not so bad movie, even though we're shown as 'the bad guys' once again. The biggest fault was selection of the actors, because most of the actors that play Serbs are Russians and Slovaks, so their Serbian was a littlebit funny. Like if Swedish played Englishman.
