Joaquim de Almeida (ADM Juan Piquet)
When a U.S. Navy F-18 is shot down over Bosnia, photographing sensitive areas, the local military try to cover it up. It is up to the crew to survive and get the information back to their commanders, against the odds with betrayal inside their own allies.
Also from this series:
Burnett and Stackhouse are shot down in this aircraft. It is actually from VFA-122 but carries the markings of the defunct VFA-163. ID NJ-106, Serial 165673.
The F/A-18C is smaller and has air intakes and LEX fences on the apex which easily distinguish it from the F/A-18 E/F.
Just a glimpse during the launch.
On the far edge of the aircraft carrier.
Used as a passenger transport, mostly for Adm. Piquet. The "Hotel" model is distinguished the HIRSS Exhaust ducts, Port side Gunners Windows that open on tracks and Auxiliary External Fuel Tank.
Used by the first Piquet's extraction team, a french crew (as stated by the screenplay).
Used as gunship and support helicopters in Burnett's rescue. In reality, the US Navy never used the UH-1D execpt during a brief transition at NAS Whting Field, between the Bell TH-13 and introducing the Bell TH-57 Sea Ranger in the late 1960s for training, these should be UH-1Ns as shown while leaving the carrier. The pair of 205 Super Huey are distinguished because of the location of the tail rotor which is on the starboard side as the same as the UH-1N, and former USAF HH-1H Hueys for the SAR role.
Masquerading as a UH-1N trio that took off from the carrier are a pair of Bell AB205 and a sole Bell 412. Where filiming taken place on land in Czech Republic its interesting to know that an operator of the Bell 412 in that country is the Czech Police.
Three of these are seen leaving the aircraft to rescue Burnett, however they appear to materialize into single-engined UH-1D Iroquois.
Exterior naval footage was filmed on board the carrier USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70) on February 2001.
Various aeronautical features
9K35 Strela-10 (NATO reporting name: SA-13 Gopher) is firing against the A/F-18.
During the aiming and chasing by the missile, instead the usual 9M37 missile of the 9K35, we can see a R-40 (AA-6) AAM.
