Talk to me! Talk to me, Number One!

Hi, I'm bullet-proof. What are you?


- What the hell?!

- We're losing cabin pressure!

Mayday! Mayday! This is flight 611.

We have emergency decompression.

We're over Ocalaca, Florida.

Go! Go!

I got you, hang on!

OK. Hold on to me. Hold on! OK...

Lena, hold on... I got her.

Terry! Hang on!

I got you! Hold on!

I'm slipping!

No! Terry!

Glenn Blackstone, FBI.

- Bob Covington.

- Tom McCracken, US Marshals.

I'm looking for my guy, Pete Nessip.

Pete's over there.

Pete... Pete, did you see anything?

Two, three... maybe more.

You didn't hear

their names or anything?

A little girl...

I reached for her and grabbed her.

They shot Terry. Motherfuckers.

He was bad. He was real bad.

The blood was everywhere.

I grabbed him and I had him.

But I couldn't hold him.

I couldn't hold him.

Bring up

the passenger list.

Break down ticket purchase

from cash and credit card.

Cross-check with advance

and same-day purchase.

- What are you doing?

- Nothing. It's some virus, sir.

- Well, get it back.

- The whole system's going down.

It's Leedy.

- What?

- It was a set-up.

What are you saying?

A prison break at 30,000ft?

- Why not?

- They used a spaceship (?)

One had a pack.

Maybe a parachute.

Did Leedy float down

like Mary Poppins?

Nobody saw a parachute.

Nobody could see in the smoke!

They DID see your brother fire

at a man wrapped in explosives.

That's a lie! Do the FBI

get extra polnts for speed?

We're talking about my brother, man!

Isn't that worth the investigation?

You want an investigation?

Two hours after the explosion,

a maintenance man was shot at Miami

Airport, running from detectives.

In his apartment, they found Posse

Commitus literature and explosives.
