That horrible movie Battlefield Earth.
In that movie, which takes place in the future when humans are enslaved by aliens and basically cavemen, they rise up against their captors to free themselves.
They came across an air force base, which had several Harrier jump jets in them. At this point, the Harrier jets were over 1000 years old, and these people WHO COULD NOT READ managed to learn to fly these jets and attack their alien captors within a week.
Every time I see a flight club with Drew and the guys struggling to get these planes off the ground, I think of this horrible movie, and the cavemen at the controls of fighter jets.
Just thought I'd mention that. Praise Xenu.
