On one of Mac's favorite trips down Memory Lane, looking in vain for his late father's favorite, perfect fishing spot, he gets lost as usual, this time ending up in a diner run by a boy's mother Kelly Nielson. As soon as the other guests lose patience, Mac gets held at gun-point with her and the cook by a bunch of criminals who took over the road café two hours earlier to rob a passing money transport from Dallas. Mac saves the driver's life by making a non-lethal blowtorch to open the 'can', only to see him shot anyhow. Mac now teams up with the other male hostage, Kelly's friend, traumatized Vietnam veteran helicopter pilot Dave Redding, and learns the troublesome fiends' plan to commit a hijack on the adjoining flying school's airstrip, which they try to counter, either obeying to survive or cleverly sabotaging, with more highly original McGyverisms, using anything around...

When Mac is put into the walk in freezer, he proceeds to push aside a side of beef which is obviously not frozen. He then grabs several metal items to use in removing the door handle & making a 'water ramp'. His skin would have frozen upon touching the metal that you have to assume has been in that freezer for some amount of time. See more
When I was a kid, my dad once took me on a trip to his favorite fishing hole. It's a place called Sparrow's Lake. It's the most beautiful spot you've ever seen. And, whenever I get a little time off, like now, I go back and try to find it. But, it's an out-of-the-way kind of spot and I always seem to get a little lost and wind up at a crossroads.
