Independence Day

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.
And been doing that ever since.
On a personal note, sir,
I'd just like to add that

ever since I was kidnapped
by aliens 10 years ago,

l have been dyin' for some payback.
l just want you to know
that I won't let you down.

You have one tactical nuclear missile
we're loading into this launcher
under the right wing.

This is the firing mechanism.
lt'll be attached to the ship's main console.
Just like the Amraam launch pad
on a Stealth.

Except the nuke will not detonate at impact.
You'll have 30 seconds
to get your asses out ofthere.

Good luck, gentlemen.
30 seconds.
It's the strongest radio transmitter we had.
lt'll tell us when you've uploaded the virus.

30 seconds. Don't you think
that's cutting it too close?

We're gonna be well on our way back home
before we shoot that thing off.

Why you? David!
