Storyline

The President, C.J. Cregg, Will Bailey, and others are returning from a long flight overseas. As Air Force One is about to land, the indicator light for the nose wheel fails to come on, prompting pilot Colonel Jessie Weiskopf to call off the landing, and notify the President of the possibility of terrorism. The White House Press Corps is on board, therefore CJ and Will must keep the story under wraps, due to it being a world market event. This becomes a challenge when a F-16 Eagle jet is sent to inspect the nose wheel on AFO. Meanwhile on the ground, Josh is working with Congressman Tom Landis (R-MD) on legislation to Clean-up Chesapeake Bay, which angers Congressional Democrats. Toby meets with Congressman Mark Richardson (D-NY) who has introduced legislation to reinstate the draft, furthermore Toby notifies the Congressman a soldier from his constituency was killed in action in Equatorial Kundu.

Trivia

Josh is met in a WW passageway by Democrat Party leaders who saw him in talks with a Republican representative from Maryland, and they mention the Bartlet re-election is a "lonely landslide." This meant that, while carrying a majority for himself, Bartlet did not enable fellow Democrats to get re-elected as well. Similarly-termed elections: California's Democratic Governor Jerry Brown [1978], Reagan over Mondale [1984]. See more »

Goofs

At one point the pilot of Air Force 1, while speaking to the PotUS about the problem with the nose landing gear, refers to what he calls the "back wheels". The correct term, which a real pilot - especially a senior officer in the Air Force would use, is "main gear" or "main landing gear". See more »

Quotes

Donna Moss: Angel
[Air Force One]
Donna Moss: undergoes maintenance every day, whether the plane's gonna be flying or not. Every 154 days, the plane's completely taken apart and put back together again. 24 hours before wheels-up, fuel is sealed in a tank truck and guarded by sharpshooters. One hour before wheels-up, Air Force specialist drain off a gallon and analyze it for purity and the right levels of octane and water.
