Joan Wilder is hired by Middle Eastern dictator Omar to write a sanitized version of his biography. He holds her prisoner in his fortress until she complies, with Jack Colton attempting to rescue her. It turns out Omar has stolen the sacred jewel of the local tribal peoples. Jack plans to steal back this jewel but in reality the "Jewel" is actually the tribes' holy man whom Omar is keeping captive alongside Joan.
Omar flies Joan to his city in this helicopter. Whilst escaping later, Jack shoots it with the jet's machine guns and blows it up.
Omar keeps a single fighter jet at his airfield. When Jack, Joan and the Jewel are escaping they use the jet. Since Jack cannot fly, however, they drive out of the city in it, instead. For scenes of the jet driving out in the desert, it has a modified undercarriage and landing gear.
