He put the explosives on board?

Detective Fox recognised

him from the pre-flight inspection.

I'm telling you...

We feel bad about your brother.

Nobody wants him to be fall guy.

But he panicked, opened fire

and 14 people are dead.

My brother didn't panic.

Forensic got an ID

on some remains found on the plane.

Your prisoner... Leedy.


'Through the investigation

by federal and local officials,

'the FBI has answered most questions

concerning the attempted hijack

'of PAC-Atlantic flight 611.'

'Was it a Marshal

who set off the explosion? '

'That question

is under investigation.'

Hey, guys!

You guys, check it out.

They're buying it, top to bottom.

- Of course.

- Talk about a rush, man.

Out that door, the wind

hits you like a train.

I saw this woman

still holding a magazine!

Has Leedy finished throwing up?

Don't touch my hand, lady!

Don't touch my hand!

Earl, come here. Come here...

- Shut up and say thank you.

- Thank you?! You bit off my finger!

- You have nine good ones.

- How can I work?

You crashed the airline system

with one hand.


'We're hearing that the marshal

fired at a hijacker,

'and set off the explosion, killing

Yes! Unload the boat.

'... and a prisoner, Earl Leedy.'

Wait. Wait... They think I'm dead.

Does that mean I'm free?

No, your ass belongs to me.

And it'll be worth your while.

But what about the other marshal?

- I shot him.

- He was in the bathroom.

Listen, all he saw was smoke.

We got out clean,

except for you, Jagger.

Next time, just throw her

out the door.

I'll buy you breakfast.

Come on, let's go.


Hi, Pete. I need to talk,

it's important.

So is this. Wait till you see

what I've found.

I got it down to a two-mile radius
