About Blue Thunder

Hand-picked by his boss to test an experimental attack helicopter called Blue Thunder, LA police pilot Frank Murphy (Roy Scheider) is amazed by its ability to see through walls, record a whisper or level a city block. But when he uses the craft's high-tech equipment to record a meeting in which Blue Thunder's secret destiny is revealed to be the ultimate weapon in illegal domestic surveillance and crowd control-Murphy is targeted for elimination. While his girlfriend (Candy Clark) tries to get the tape into the hands of the media, Murphy commandeers Blue Thunder and leads a spectacular chase through Los Angeles.
