Helicopter pilot Sam finds himself up against a ruthless gang of drug dealers.
Sam's helicopter used throughout the movie. It takes a lot of punishment before being finally brought down by gunfire. Sam manages to land the disabled chopper safely, though. Registration N4EE, Serial 113-0537S.
Used by Zervasco's henchmen throughout the movie. One is Reg. N62345 s/n 2407 (even though Sam claims the numbers have been painted out), the second (not shown) is Reg. N62250 s/n 2334. The red one is accidentally disabled by gunfire from the gray one; the gray one crashes into a cliff.
Chases Sam and Chris at the border. Chris disables it with a flare gun.
Zervasco's helicopter. Reg. N341BB, s/n 1145. Sam steals it after his Hughes is shot down by climbing aboard it in mid-flight and throwing Zervasco and his pilot out.
Sam's biplane flown by his old war buddy Frank at the climax.
Two additional Stearmans accompany Frank as "Chicken Squadron" to engage the helicopters of Zervasco's henchmen in midair battle. One is shot down, the other assists Frank in forcing the henchmen's Lama down.
