Quotes

Janet Harduvel: I know it wasn't Ted's fault. I'm not coming back here until I prove it.


Goofs

The tail codes on the F-16s, which the Air Force uses to identify the base from which an aircraft flies, constantly change in flight on what is supposed to be the same aircraft. In some shots, the jets are correctly identified with a "WP" tail code for Kunsan Air Base, Korea, the base at which Capt. Ted Harduvel was assigned at the time of his accident. In other shots, the same aircraft is incorrectly identified with a "WA" tail code. This is the tail code for Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada, which had no part in the story of this film.


Crazy Credits

On appeal, the court ruled that although Janet Harduvel had presented substantial evidence of design defect in the F-16, General Dynamics was protected from liability as a government contractor. Accordingly, the $3.1 million damage award was overturned. Ted Harduvel's name remains clear. To date, more than 140 F-16s have crashed from a variety of causes. More than 40 pilots have died. The Air Force maintains that the F-16 is "the safest single engine fighter of all time". Janet Harduvel is continuing her legal battle against General Dynamics.
