The film bears some resemblance to the 1994 action film Freefall, which is about a skydiving spy who uncovers a plot to expose the identities of undercover Interpol agents. Drop Zone was released in the United States on December 9, 1994.

Undeterred, Pete consults a U.S. Navy Highaltitude military parachuting instructor who confirms that he and his team have parachuted from that height and speed, but also states that the highdensity metal rings in the parachutes would not pass airport metal detectors and that the operation required either rare skills or suicidal recklessness. The instructor believes the world class skydiver Dominic Jagger Luca Bercovici could perform the jump, but does not know his current whereabouts. Pete is instead referred to Jaggers reckless exwife, excon Jessie Crossman Yancy Butler who is unaware that Jagger is part of Tys crew. Jessie agrees to train Pete how to skydive, if he will sponsor her team for the parachute exhibition.When Jessies parachuting friend Selkirk Corin Nemec is severely injured after using a faulty parachute that Ty had intended for Jessie to use, Pete is appointed to take Selkirks place. Soon after, Jagger is found dead, tangled in some high voltage power lines. Jesse breaks into the police impound to examine Jaggers parachute, declares that his death was a murder engineered by Ty, and swears revenge. Pete inquires as to the parachutes lack of metal, which Jesse explains is a custom smugglers rig made with high density fabrics to deter radar. ........
