The A-Team is called in to help out an airline when one of their planes is hijacked by a terrorist group. Hannibal and Face masquerade as airline executives to bargain for the release of the passengers in a prisoner exchange. Meanwhile Murdock and B.A. sneak aboard the plane through the cargo hold in an effort to help neutralize the hijackers. Things get dicey though when the plane takes off unexpectedly and B.A. becomes catatonic, thanks to his fear of flying. To make matters worse, Murdock is accidentally blinded when a gun discharges in his face and it's up to Hannibal to land the jet even though he has no flying experience. Written by

Military history has taught us that conflict is merely the seizing of space from ones aggressor. They've got the space up there, we got the offensive posture down here.
So the two of us assume an offensive posture against six guys with guns in an airplane at 35.000 over the ocean?
Well, it's the application of the theory that's interesting.
