After a joint American-Russian military operation results in the capture of Kazakh terrorist Ivan Radek, U.S. President James Marshall (Harrison Ford) and his family go to Moscow to attend a celebratory dinner. On their journey back to the U.S., their plane, the Air Force One, is hijacked by a group of Radek loyalists led by Ivan Korshunov (Gary Oldman).
Ivan contacts Vice President Kathryn Bennett (Glenn Close) and threatens to kill hostages every 30 minutes if Radek is not released. To the hijackers’ surprise, the President turns out to be the biggest threat to their mission. Using his previous military experience, President Marshall must fight the men and ensure the safety of his family and personnel.
