Plot summary

(4 votes)

A state of the art stealth bomber carrying live nukes on a test exercise over Nevada crashes in the desert.

One of the pilots is the mastemind of a plot to steal the nukes, the other one is the only person who knows what he is doing and can stop him.

Together with a female park ranger the good pilot sets off to hunt down the mad pilot and his merry bunch of cohorts and recover the nukes before he can blow something up.

he sets one of them off underground in an old mine but what does he intend to do with the other.

The trail ends up at a rail track. did the mad pilot go east or West?

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.
