- I need to go, too.

- You can stay sitting down.


Your blouse is open.

Don't try and break

the undercarriage.

If you do, we'll die together.

Don't worry.

I'll do a kiss landing.




Good, Captain.


Why is this taking so long?

Unless you tell me

where we're going,

I'm going to need

five or six of these.


Get back inside the plane.

If you want to fly on

and if you want to be safe,

I-I need to do

my pre-flight checks.

I need to check the wheels,

the brakes and the engine.

You should be taking care

of those people inside.

They've been on this plane

five hours now.

They need food and drinks.

You will run.

You have my word, I won't.

And you don't want

to be holding that

next to a fuel truck.

Are you a member

of Baader-Meinhof?

Fill up the plane, engineer.

Do your job.


- Brigitte, Juan Pablo.

- Hello.

Hijacking a plane?

That is a serious step.

What's in it for us?

Let's just see

what Jaber has to say.


Your movement

is under pressure.

Your support is fading.

Many of your colleagues

are in jail.

An action like this can inspire

a new generation to follow you.

The PFLP will call

for the release

of 50 Palestinian prisoners.

We could also demand the

release of some of our friends.

If we do this,

we can demand anything we want.

We can demand that

Ulrike Meinhof is on the list?

They will never release Ulrike.


Like I said,

if we do this right,

they have to do

whatever we want.

- Aim!





We need to talk.



Ulrike Meinhof is dead.

She killed herself.

Your movement is dying.

She cut her hair.

No, she quit.

And that poses a problem.

Which problem?

His father and his mother.
