PG-13 | | Action, Thriller, War
A young pilot plans a rescue mission when his father, an Air Force Colonel, is shot down over enemy territory and captured.
During pre-production, this was called "Junior Eagle".
How was that?
Chappy Sinclair: I thought you was a pilot, not an astronaut!
When Milo is using the computer to access intelligence data, the screen lists a "Su-19 Fencer." This is incorrect as the Fencer is actually the SU-24. This confusion exists because in early 1974 U.S. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Thomas Moorer announced the new Soviet plane as a SU-19 Fencer (due to an incorrect NATO designation that was corrected afterwards); even today some references incorrectly mention the SU-19 Fencer. Still, USAF data in 1986 would have the correct NATO designation of SU-24 Fencer.
The credits are yellow over a blue background, as opposed to the normal white over a black background.
