Chappy Sinclair is back. This time he tries to help a woman, whose South American village has been taken over by a former Nazi, who is now a cocaine dealer and who uses her village as his base of operations. She manages to escape and goes to the States and meets up with Chappy. When Chappy tries to get help from the Air Force, he discovers that the General he is speaking to, is the Nazi's partner. So, he along with three ageing pilots, take some vintage fighter planes and go there to try and help.Written by
OK, guys. Lighten up. It's not THAT bad--and as another commenter said, it has Horst Buckholz (cf: "One, Two, Three," with Cagney, not to mention "The Magnificent Seven," for crying out loud!). Name me another great fly-boy shoot-em up fantasy flic that has United States Senator Fred Thompson AND Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini in it? Plus great warbird flying footage?
As an Air Force vet, a little boo-boo that stood out immediately to me: In scenes where Chappy (Lou Gossett's character) is in his "dress blue" Air Force uniform (eagles on the epaulets correctly indicating a colonel) he clearly has ENLISTED MAN'S (airmen and sergeants) "U.S." insignia on his lapels. It shows the "U.S." inside a ring. That's how it looks on an enlisted man's uniform. A colonel (an officer) would have just plain "U.S." without the circle around it. Have a look at his boss's (the general) lapels. He has the correct ones.
