Terrorist organization Black September is planning an attack on the United States. A woman called Dahlia is the one overseeing the operation. She was in the Middle East with the other members of the organization, discussing the operation when some Israelis came in; the leader, Major Kobakov had his gun on her but didn't shoot her. Kobakov then informed the US what they found. Though they don't know what their operation is, Kobakov assures them that it will be devastating. So, with FBI man, Corley, they try to find out what it is before it's too late. But they both have different ways of doing things, and since Kobakov is the visitor, he is warned to watch it. Dahlia's "partner in crime" is Michael Lander, a Vietnam P.O.W., who is psychologically scarred by that experience, thus making him very susceptible to her machinations.

If you look closely you can see the difference between the Florida blimp ("Mayflower") and the other two used in the film. The Florida airship is actually smaller (160 ft vs. 192 feet) but the "Goodyear" decal on the side is the same size. Thus it take sup more space on the envelope of the Florida ship, stretching from the edge of the nosecone right to the edge of the horizontal fin. The other ships have more "empty space" in those areas. See more
When the blimp takes off from its base in South Florida en-route to the SuperBowl, you can see mountains in the distance. South Florida's terrain is flat. See more
FBI Agent Sam Corley
The President isn't persuaded that attending the Super Bowl will pose a threat to his life. I suppose it's the more important threat on his mind; he's slipping in the polls! Eighty-two thousand, five hundred twenty-eight, to be exact!
