Hot Shots! (1991)
The opening crowd shot of the boxing match attended by Lt. Cmdr. Block and Wilson is reused footage of the final fight scene of Rocky II. In addition both of the fighters and their corner men that are used for more close up shots filmed for this movie are dressed in exactly the same colored robes and uniforms as worn by Sylvester Stallone, Carl Weathers, Burgess Meredith and Tony Burton in Rocky II, along with matching floor canvas and ring rope covers used to match both film footage together seamlessly.
The shot of the "S.S. Essess" back lit by the rising sun is stock footage of the U.S.S. Nimitz from the movie The Final Countdown (1980). That movie starred Martin Sheen, Charlie Sheen's Father.
Several aircraft carrier scenes were taken from the movie Flight of the Intruder (1991), including the flyby of 4 planes when the pilots arrive at the aircraft carrier, when the bombs are loaded onto the planes, and when the planes launched for their final mission.
