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.
Some of the "Libyan" soldiers at the airbase, from where Doug's dad was rescued, were using the Swedish 9mm SMG m/45. Originally developed during World War II. Still in use, but in very small numbers nowadays, within the Swedish Armed Forces. It has also served in U.S. Special Forces as a very simple, easy handled and very reliable SMG. Some period also manufactured on license in Egypt. That's why the "Libyan" soldiers were using it.
Chappy, I got 'em, I got all three of the guns!
Chappy Sinclair: Yeah, but one of them got me.
All of the pilot's oxygen masks are not "tacked." Tacking a mask means the mask straps are sewn together so they don't come loose and fall out during flight. It is required by AFI 11-301, Aircrew Life Support Programs.
The credits are yellow over a blue background, as opposed to the normal white over a black background.
