Filmed during the Nimitz' Sep 1979-May 1980 cruise. Squadrons aboard the Nimitz at the time included VF-41 and VF-84 (F-14A Tomcats), VA-35 (A-6E Intruder), VA-82 and VA-86 (A-7E Corsair II), VFP-63 (RF-8G Crusader), VAQ-134 (EA-6B Prowler), VS-24 (S-3A Viking), VAW-112 (E-2B Hawkeye), and HS-9 (SH-3H Sea King). All squadrons get time on film. Other Navy aircraft types briefly seen include a North American/Rockwell RA-5C Vigilante when Lasky's helicopter is taking off in the movie's beginning (Tailcode code "GJ" is visible on it, which designates it as assigned to Reconnaissance Heavy Attack Squadron Three (RVAH-3) operating out of Naval Air Station Key West, Florida) and an F-4 Phantom II is on the Nimitz' flight deck when the Crusader is recovered following its reconnaissance mission (Markings can't be made out on it).

This movie deals with time-travel on a large scale... And like most sci-fi films, it is easy to pick their theories apart (especially after almost 25 years). I think that many of us have a tendency to over-analyze these types of movies, when, in fact, we should just sit back and enjoy the experience.
I first saw this movie at a drive-in (remember those?!?!), and during one scene in particular, the entire crowd actually cheered. This is not a reaction I'd expect from a large crowd during a "bad" movie. If you like sci-fi, aircraft, and time-travel movies, then ignore the nay-sayers and watch this movie! It's one of my all-time favorites.
