A spaceship from another world crashes in the Arizona desert and only an amateur stargazer and a schoolteacher suspect alien influence when the local townsfolk begin to act strangely.
Typing the helicopter's number into most web search engines will produce its registration and history (last checked in 2013). Although the copter is shown carrying three people in the film, it was registered as a two seat vehicle.
This is Sand Rock, Arizona, of a late evening in early spring. It's a nice town, knowing its past and sure of its future, as it makes ready for the night, and the predictable morning. The desert blankets the earth, cooling, resting for the fight ...
The top support of the incoming spacecraft is visible, and just before the shot ends, you can see the reflections of a glass box or window on the screen.
The credits are at the end rather than at the beginning. They include shots of the characters with the cast names, and the pictures would mean nothing if seen before the film.
