Ted McKeever can't understand why pretty Dana Oliver demands his company prove they can drop a crate of eggs by parachute without cracking a shell. When Ted's team demonstrates its capabilities, she reveals the reason for her strange request - she wants Ted, Jim and Chuck to airdrop a top-secret and extremely fragile missile instrument to ransom her father who is being held prisoner in the mountains by technology-savvy kidnappers.

Quotes

[first lines]
Ted McKeever: [narrating] Dropping cargo is usually a matter of preparation and calculation. If you've figured air speed and rate of drop correctly and if the wind cooperates, it's pretty easy to put the package where you want it. I say usually because there was nothing usual about this drop.
