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.

FADE IN:

INT. C-130 HERCULES TURBO-PROP - NIGHT

Eighteen combat-ready special forces, wearing assault black,

jump packs and combat gear, stare down the deep end of a

greasy ramp into the night sky. Village lights flicker 19,000

feet below.

The STRIKE FORCE LEADER signals to his team.

Without a moment's hesitation, they dive into the darkness

and plummet toward earth.

EXT. MANSION - NIGHT

A military GUARD, old Soviet-style uniform, rounds the corner

of the large estate toting an AK-47.

A red laser dot appears briefly on his forehead and, after a

beat, the red dot seems to bleed. The Guard collapses dead.

Two other GUARDS are dispatched with single, silenced shots.

A Strike Team member at a junction box awaits a signal.

Through infra-red binoculars the strike Force Leader watches

his assault troops as they take positions.

STRIKE FORCE LEADER

(into headset/in

Russian)

GO!

On the estate - as the power goes out. The team on the

mansion's front porch pops the door and pours in.

INT. MANSION - NIGHT

FOLLOWING - the FIVE TEAM MEMBERS as they rush a stairway in

phalanx formation. They nearly knock over an old lady, who

in turn lets out a blood curdling scream.

UPSTAIRS CORRIDOR -

The team kicks open a door. Rushes into the room.

INT. BEDROOM -

Assault weapons pointed at the bed. The soldiers yank back

bedsheets to reveal IVAN STRAVANAVITCH, a middle-aged man

and his half-naked 18-year-old concubine.

SOLDIER:

(in Russian)

Get up, now! Up!

The soldiers pull Stravanavitch to his feet and haul him out

of the room.

FOLLOWING - As they push down the hallway.

MANSION SECURITY GUARDS rally with haphazard gunfire.

Out come the strike force's flash-bang grenades. Exploding

everywhere, disorienting Stravanavitch's men.

EXT. FIELD - NIGHT

Signal flares burn as a helicopter descends on the position.

The Strike Team evacuates across the field and forces a

struggling Stravanavitch into the low-hovering copter.

The commandos swiftly board the craft as a handful of

Stravanavitch's guards break into the clearing. They open

fire.

And the mounted machine guns on the helicopter return.

One of the Strike Team members takes a bullet to the neck.

He's' pulled by his comrades into the chopper as it lifts

into the sky, its guns spitting lead...

STRIKE FORCE LEADER (V.0.)

Archangel, this is Restitution.

Archangel, this is Restitution. The package is wrapped.

Over.

VOICE (V.0. RADIO)

Roger, Restitution. We are standing

by for delivery.

FADE TO BLACK:

The SOUNDS of a dinner banquet.

Forks clanking against plates and

the din of a hundred conversations,

broken by...
