Storyline

After having a little accident on the set of his latest monster movie, Hannibal has to spend the night in a hospital. From there he is kidnapped and brought before the mysterious retired general Hunt Stockwell, who proposes a mission to free the passengers of a hijacked plane. One passenger in particular interests them both: Captain Curtis, the one man who could prove the A-Team's innocence in the '72 Hanoi bank job. Hannibal decides to take along the young special effects man who was responsible for landing him in the hospital, 'Dishpan' Frankie Santana. As the five of them leave for Spain, Stockwell designated them the call-numbers 'Empress' 7 to 12. Written by The TV Archaeologist

In the briefing, Carla says that there are ten terrorists on the airplane. Later, after four of the terrorists leave the airplane with some of the hostages, only four terrorists remain on the airplane - so that would be eight, not ten. See more »
