Col. F.E. Cochrane:
We have a ship down, somewhere in the watts area.
Long shotgun microphones meant to record sound coming from the surface while the helicopter is in flight would never be mounted on the top of the helicopter, directly below the rotor blades. Aside from the blades and engine drowning out any sound, the ground would not be within the pick-up pattern of the microphones, and there would be no way to maneuver them into correct position.
There are no opening credits after the title is shown.
