AIR FORCE ONE - the Film
"WE WILL NOT NEGOTIATE
WITH TERRORISTS !"
Yet within hours, Air Force One was hijacked
by a brutal band of terrorists from Kazakhstan,
deceptively disguised as the journalists whom
they had killed.
"Agree to our demands,
or we will kill one person
every half-hour . . .
We're losing fuel -
National Security Advisor is killed.
Sadly, the Vice-President accepts the demand.
"The fuel is on its way."
to leave the plane, Marshall hides, looking for
opportunity to overcome hijackers.
Pres. Marshall and woman who enables
him to send fax instructions to
White House staff.
Meanwhile, the First Lady and daughter
are being held in communications center.
President's PR assistant:
"I don't want to die!"
But another lamb is slaughtered.
Vice President announces highjacking
to press and to the world. U.S. Constitution
is consulted. Secretary of Defense pushes to
have President Marshall declared 'incapacitated'.
Vice President almost signs it - then stops . . .
After the hostages have parachuted
from the plane, the President wins his
hand-to-hand with the lead terrorist.
He dispatches his body to parachute to earth,
shouting, "GET OFF MY PLANE!'
The President's daughter encourages him
as he takes the controls.
The fighter escort pilot sees it will be impossible to land the plane,
so a rescue vehicle is sent. All parachutes are gone.
Air Rescue specialists take First Lady, her daughter and
a wounded man to the rescue ship.
Then Secret Service agent who had aided the terrorists,
reveals himself at last.
Marshall wins again, and the line
attached to the plane above, pulls him up through the air to safety.
Air Force One hits the ocean, carrying the traitorous agent with it.
Then shaky but undaunted,
Frank Marshall is pulled aboard the rescue plane,
now called, AIR FORCE ONE.
The White House rejoices, those around the world rejoice --
but mostly, the huddled man, his wife and their daughter,
are thankful - for they still have each other.
