Roger Murdock, actually.  (Played by the always entertaining Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.)  Peter Graves was Clarence Oveur.

So... how long do you think before the CT folk come out with claims of a test of an orbital superweapon directed on a Russian village?  Or have they already started?

What made eve funnier is the engineer's name was Victor.

It had to be one of the funniest three-way (four way if you count the control tower) conversations ever in any movie

Flight 2-0-9'er, you are cleared for take-off.
Roger!
Huh?
L.A. departure frequency, 123 point 9'er.
Roger!
Huh?
Request vector, over.
What?
Flight 2-0-9'er cleared for vector 324.
We have clearance, Clarence.
Roger, Roger. What's our vector, Victor?
Tower's radio clearance, over!
That's Clarence Oveur. Over.
Over.
Roger.
Huh?
Roger, over!
What?
Huh?
Who?

So far, all I'm seeing is one girl I knew in junior high persistently posting on Facebook about how the Mayans were ahead of the game after all.  Sigh.
