After Kelly Henderson competes against Mac and Pete for the Phoenix Foundation's field exercise trophy, they are sent by boss Jeff Moore, who pilots the dropping plane personally, as a rescue team when her dad Joe Henderson is arrested and expected to be sentenced to death as an alleged spy after his plane crashed on its way to Panama. Kelly stowed away so that she can jump with them in the banana republic San Perez, which just had colonel Salazar's military coup. Their contact is Lt. Paul Parra, Joe's army-appointed defense counsel. As Kelly packed a small arsenal but no passport, they are arrested at the first check-point, but Mac starts working his magic with a mere handful of dust. . . Written by KGF Vissers

The parachutes of Mac and Kelly both opened as they jumped out of the airplane. This is normal procedure if they were connected to a static line, which deploys the chute at a predetermined distance from the plane. However, neither one of them were attached to a static line. See more »
