Independence Day

It's from the Americans.
They want to organise a counteroffensive!
It's about bloody time!
What do they plan to do?

We have confirmed reports
of combat-ready divisions

- in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.
- Impressive. Considering it's all done with...

Morse code.
- The armed forces here?
- We have sufficient aircraft, but...

- But what?
- Pilots are comin' up short.

Well, then, find 'em.
Ham radio operators from New York to Japan
trade rumours of military forces in hiding,

unwilling to reveal themselves
for fear of annihilation...

We're planning to launch a counter offensive.
With our depleted manpower,
we're asking that anyone with
flight experience come forward.

Military training is preferable,
but anyone who can fly would be useful.

l can fly. I'm a pilot.
All right, guys! Listen up!
Pay attention. These F-18s are
very different than the jets you piloted.

- It's strong.
- Forgive the expression,

but this is a crash course in modern avionics.
- Keep it comin'.
- OK, you got it!

All right, listen up. First we need some
background information on your experience.

Let's start with you.
Who, me?
Well, I'm Russell Casse, sir.
And after 'Nam I got into crop-dusting.
