They tell him that a microwave beam weapon killed his friend and those on TWA flight 800 and has now been attached to a super-sonic fighter plane called the Flacon. The falcon project has just been canceled by the military and the company that built it plans to steal it from its base at Area 51 and then sell it to the Chinese for $10 billion and that they need Hank's help to steal the plane and fly it to Alaska to have it dismantled before the company steals it.

XB-70 Valkyrie

Just a comment on the trivia bit: The Valkyrie supersonic bomber is a long fuselage with a delta wing at the root and canards at the cockpit area.

I do believe that the trivia bit just may be a little off.
