Factual error: The United States Air Force does NOT, ever, allow its pilots to box competitively! Ground staff, yes; pilots, no, never. A pilot can be suspended from flying if he/she receives a blow to the head in day-to-day life; boxing is right out. Almost all air forces (the RAF included) impose this rule.
Deakins (John Travolta) and all the people that work for him die and the second nuke is disarmed by Hale (Christian Slater) seconds before it explodes. Hale and Terry introduce themselves and shake hands.
Trivia: John Woo wanted Hale to die in the film, but the studio was against it because of Slater's popularity with younger audiences.
Question: Like the Wilhelm scream, is there a name to the scream Howie Long makes he falls? I've heard that in more than few other things.
