Filmed on location outside Phoenix, Arizona in the spring of 1978 and not released until nearly two years later. A forgotten little gem of a movie starring Kung Fu’s David Carradine and Jennifer O’Neill. Hoyt Axton sings. A true classic about Aerobatics and Stunt Flyers.
Of interest to Green Bay Packers literary fans, Stanton Greene, author of books about Brett Favre, Dan Devine and Vince Lombardi, was an extra at age 19 in this movie and can be seen standing next to Jennifer O’Neil at 9:16 to 9:19 into the film. He’s the blonde haired, good looking guy with a mustache and glasses and no I’m not talking about Groucho Marx.
