  •  I like that movie (1+ / 0-)

    They got the nuclear command-control procedures down pat.

    The plot was a bit cheesy in parts, put pretty good overall.

    The B-52 in the movie was a lot roomier and better lit than in real life.

    Women weren't allowed to fly bombers back then, but we had some women in the tanker community that were in Rebecca De Mornay territory.

    If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's reeeally sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low... oh you oughta see it sometime. It's a sight. A big plane like a '52... varrrooom! Its jet exhaust... frying chickens in the barnyard!

    •  Did Not Show the PZLT Goggles (0+ / 0-)

      Interestingly, the movie did not show them using the PZLT goggles.  I suspect it's because the plot line depends on the female co-pilot lsing the sight in one eye when she mistakently glances at a close nuclear blast past the edge of a badly arranged blast curtain.
