One thing I never understood about that film tho was why, if it was for transfering crews on and off B-52s, was the damn thing stealthy? I mean, when its attached to a freaking great big rock like the B-52, whoes going to care about its little appendage?! Personally I think they meant the B-2, which would make more sense.

Anyone saw this movie with K.Russel? Now I want to know if it is possible to do it (at least teoretically) - is it possible with some special equipment to connect to the Boeing 747 during the flight and get on board? Or are the turbulences too powerfull?
For those who never saw the movie - it has a little resebmblance to the 9/11. Group of terrorist hijacks the transatlantic plane and rig a nerve gas bomb to it. They are planning to detonate it over East coast. The CIA discovers the plot and want to shot the plane down. US SOF takes a special plane (in movie a F-117) and they connect it with 747 during flight over Atlantic (with some adhesive pressurized popup tunel)and get onboard through some kind of maintance doors, or something like that.
