Air Force One (film)/Trivia

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • Hey, It's That Guy!:

    • Jerry Lundegaard is a Major in the US Army stationed aboard Air Force One.

    • Maxwell Dent was so angry about being taken down by Axl Foley that he became a genocidal general.
    • The terrorists' pilot? Peter Parker's goofy landlord.
    • Terrorist Boris is played by the guy from Wishmaster.
    • Aaron Pierce is a secret service agent. He dies. And then he apparently gets better in time to rejoin the secret service in 24.
  • Old Shame: Wolfgang Petersen has expressed regret on making the film following certain events in The War on Terror.
