Independence Day - If He's Such a Pilot...
Sorry to be a nit-picker, but I feel that there are enough Military Aviation fans out there that this could have ben avoided:
When Steve (Will smith) is walking around the base of the alien fighter in Area 51, a technician walks up to him, holding a black box and explaining how it will launch the nuclear missile they're attaching. Stev responds, "It's just like the AMRAAM launch pad on a Stealth."
two problems: (a) Neither the B-2 nor the F-117a (the two stealth aircraft at the time) could launch AMRAAMs, and
(b) the AMRAAM is launched from a normal controller, not a special launch pad. If Steve is such a great aviator, you'd think he might know what weapons his planes can carry.
thanks
