Maybe you guys can help me identify a movie that a scene I remember appears in.

It's a mid-air hijacking movie where, in the climax after the hijackers had been taken care of, they were trying to land the passenger jet, but miss the runway and pass too low over a parking garage and a Ford pickup truck gets stuck on the front landing gear. An F-14 pursuing the jet, after being ordered to shoot it down, then uses its cannon to blow the truck off the landing gear so the plane can land.

I thought it was Executive Decision, but it wasn't. I've even scoured the web for the scene, but the only thing that comes up is that old TV ad with the fake video of a passenger plane using a pickup truck as a substitute front landing gear.
"The gun has played a critical role in history. An invention which has been praised and denounced... served hero and villain alike... and carries with it moral responsibility. To understand the gun is to better understand history."

“What is morality in any given time or place? It is what the majority then and there happen to like, and immorality is what they dislike.” - Alfred North Whitehead
