Pilot Billy Covington 1969 year preparing to work in the airline "Air America", which is engaged in the transport of cargo in Laos. But his team-mate Jean Rayek made it clear that the airline is involved in transporting weapons and opium, so one way or another, involved in the "dirty war" in Vietnam. At work, he expected to get easy money, but gradually he realizes that he got involved in a very large dangerous and shameful thing, but a sense of truth did not allow him to remain callous to everything that was happening on the ground and in the sky. The main focus of the film - aviation. Mostly delivery points - the hot seat in the territory of which are fighting, but sometimes luck is on their side and all the meetings and negotiations go smoothly, in other situations it is necessary to survive. Falling aircraft and helicopters - the most vivid scenes of the film. Very exciting moment was when Downey and Gibson jumped out of the helicopter, which was stuck between the trees of the jungle.
The success of the picture provided, first of all, Mel Gibson. The theme of Vietnam was predetermined interest of spectators to the film. Mel was playing the romantic rebel who always defends the integrity and fairness.
