During the Farnborough Airshow new Mirage 2000 is about to be presented to potential buyers, but when the airplane takes off pilot does not follow the planned route. Soon interceptors are sent to find him over the English Channel, where he is hiding below a passenger jet. Marchelli and Vallois are not sure how to deal with the pilot that just escaped from airshow since he does not respond to their calls. Suddenly the stolen Mirage is getting on the tail of Vallois and just when he is firing the missile Marchelli shoots him down using gun. The investigation reveals that the pilot of stolen Mirage was part of secret Special Missions Squadron and they actually killed the fellow pilot, who was taking part in security exercise. But that is only tip of the iceberg...

War movie based on the idea from 1960s comic books "Tanguy et Laverdure" by Jean-Michel Charlier and Albert Uderzo. The plot follows the two pilots from the dogfight with stolen Mirage to African desert... and back. Spectacular actions scenes, a lot of in-flight actions, very interesting plot, good performances from actors - what more can you expect? A must-see for people interested in military aircrafts and dogfights.
