Storyline

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 R. Bernard Ment

Quotes

Jackson: Who are you?
Hannibal: [removing his wig] Were a couple of ah, freelance Lone Ranger types. Beller hired us to handle you guys.
Face: Lone Ranger types?
Hannibal: Yeah.
Jackson: All right. Get back to the luggage compartment and get the parachutes. We're bailing out just as soon as we're out of range of the radar. Unless you have wings, you're dead. And you and Tonto can crack your lousy jokes as you go into the ocean.
Face: Get 'em up, Scout!
