Fridge: Fire Birds

Fridge Logic:
  • Why didn't they just put the monocle on the other side of Preston's helmet?
    • The helmet might not have been designed with interchangeability in mind, with internal wiring or circuitry not being movable. It was a product of the 80's, after all.
  • If they were expecting an air to air threat, why not deploy fighter jets, which are actually designed to engage and destroy air to air targets, rather than taking a bunch of attack helo pilots trained in ground attack and reinvent the wheel with them? Of course, if they had done that, there goes the central plot of the film.
