Movie (1995)

Louis Gossett Jr. (Charles 'Chappy' Sinclair)
Jason Cadieux (Doug Masters)
Al Waxman (Major General Brad Kettel)
Joanne Vannicola (Wheeler)

Now retired, Chappy Sinclair is running a flight school for young offenders with the help of former charge Doug Masters. During a flying competition, Masters and the trainees stumble across some Air Force officers moving canisters of chemical weapons from an abandoned base. It falls to Chappy, Doug and the team of reforming youths to foil the deadly conspiracy by fighting it in the skies.

Also from this series:

Iron Eagle
Iron Eagle II
Aces: Iron Eagle III

North American T-6 Texan

Chappy's flight school uses a fleet of these aircraft. These are in reality ex-Royal Canadian Air Force Harvard Mk 4's.

General Dynamics F-16A Netz

First seen in the beginning of the film in an alternative take of the beginning of Iron Eagle II where Doug Masters bails out of his plane. Later on at the end of the film they are used by officers in the corrupt unit and also by Doug who uses one to shoot the others down. The scenes using these aircraft are largely lifted from the earlier films in the Iron Eagle series.

The scale model used for the LongRanger's destruction appears to be a Bell JetRanger in a continuity error.

McDonnell Douglas F-4 Kurnass

A repeat of the opening of Iron Eagle II these are described as Russian MiG 29s who escort Masters' F-16 out of Soviet Airspace and shoot his plane down.
