"The Gullfire's waiting."

The Gullfire is a stealth glider used by the United States military as of the 1990s. Its primary roles are implied to be covert insertion and intelligence gathering. As a result it is intended to be able to land in very confined areas (such as atop one of the Twin Towers). The Twin Towers landing site is apparently a semi-regular method of personel insertion & retrival for USPF intel operatives who on occasion have to infiltrate Manhattan Island, which helps explain why the USPF has the Gullfire in it's inventory.

Snake Plissken has flown the Gulfire at least twice, first over Leningrad during his special forces days and later when infiltrating Manhattan island.
