(5 votes)

Having been lied to that they were never going to be released from captivity, President Marshall (Harrison Ford) breaks free and jumps one of the gunmen guarding the other prisoners. In the ensuing chaos, the President manages to kill the other guards but Gary Oldman takes the First Lady as hostages and as he attempts to escape the plan with the last of the paraschutes, she creates a distraction and Marhsall tells him to get off his place, and he does. Marshall then quickly tells the Russians to take down Raddick and he is shot down by the prison guards. After retaking control of the plan, MIGs try to intercept the plan later on. US fighter planes eventually come to their rescue but Air Force One becomes too damaged to fly. So an Air Force cargo plane tries to take each remaining passenger off the plane but when it come to the point where they can only take one more (due to low altitude), Gibbs (the traitor SS agent) shoots one of the guys and in the struggle between Marshall and Gibbs, Marshall barely hangs on to the rope just as the plan goes down with Gibbs. Marshall is helped onboard the cargo plane and the President is safe.

Plot hole: At the start when the guys are infiltrating that building they parachute down to the roof. They are dressed in black so they can't be seen, but their parachutes are white. (00:02:50)

Question: When Gary Oldman is on AF1, talking to the vice president for the first time, he says something similar to "How's your blou.." What is he saying? I don't have the DVD, so I don't have subtitles.

Answer: Earlier in the same scene, Oldman says to the VP, "I'm sure you can't wait for him (the President) to get back to making the decisions so you can stop sweating through that silk blouse of yours." As he makes his demands known, he asks her "How's your blouse?" in reference to her perspiration.
