Airforce One script
Airforce One (1997)
Synopsis: After making a speech in Moscow vowing to never negotiate with terrorists, President James Marshall (Harrison Ford) boards Air Force One with his family (Wendy Crewson, Liesel Matthews) and advisers. When a group of terrorists led by Ivan Korshunov (Gary Oldman) hijacks the flight, the President's principles are put to the test. Feigning escape, ex-solider Marshall stows away in the aircraft and must race against time to rescue his family and everyone else on board.

TRANSLATOR:

(V.0. earpiece)

Has chosen to join our fight against

tyranny in forging a new world

community. Ladies and gentlemen, I

give you the President of the United

States of America...

Mr. President.

Thunderous applause as Marshall rises and approaches the

podium.

At the back of the room, DOHERTY, a senior policy adviser

whispers to the President's Chief of Staff ED SHEPHERD...

DOHERTY:

Maybe we should consider running him

for re-election instead of the U.S.

The applause dies as Marshall begins to speak.

MARSHALL:

(in Russian with

subtitles)

Good evening and thank you. First I

would ask you to join me in a moment

of silence for the victims of the

Turkmenistan massacres.

The room remains silent a few beats. Most guests respectfully

bow their heads.

Marshall begins again, but this time in English. The young

woman translates simultaneously for the Russian audience.

MARSHALL:

As you know, three weeks ago American

Special Forces, in cooperation with

the Russian Republican Army, secured

the arrest of Turkmenistan's self-

proclaimed dictator, General Ivan

Stravanavitch, whose brutal sadistic

reign had given new meaning to the

word horror. I am proud to say our

operation was a success.
