Storyline

An ambitious executive at the Firm makes a subversive play for Archangel's job. A bomb is planted aboard a vintage helicopter owned by Dominic Santini and he's forced to crash land.

Complicating matters on Dom's end, he must contend with a stowaway aboard his chopper -- a young girl searching for her dad. Written by R. Bernard Ment

On several occasions Hawke uses a Maverick missile against enemy aircraft. In real life this is actually an air-to-ground rather than an air-to-air weapon. See more »

Bite of the Jackal

In the previous episode Hawke has to rescue an Eurasian boy from the clutches of the Russians.

Now it is Santini's turn to be lumbered with a young girl, Phoebe Danner played by a young Shannon Doherty who is a stowaway in his chopper. The trouble is Santini is bait for an operative inside The Firm who want's Archangel's role.

Santini's vintage helicopter is on its way to Acapulco but crash lands when a bomb is triggered. Santini and the girl are surrounded by bad guys, all he can do is wait for Hawke to come to the rescue.

Hawke gets Archangel to assist him, they crash land in the Mexican desert where they need to get help from the locals, one of them has an eye for Hawke's rugged looks.

There are some nice action scenes at the end of the episode but maybe enough of the kids to lighten the episode because the leading man is so brooding.
