On opening day of the new baseball season, a small model kit
airplane flies down from the stands and buzzes the mound,
where a decorated veteran pilot is about to throw out the
first ball. The toy plane is an exact replica of the one
flown by the war hero. Everyone laughs, thinking it a good
prank or a publicity stunt. Until it explodes, killing dozens.
Seconds later a swarm of killer drones descend upon the
panicked crowd, each one carrying a powerful bomb. Halfway
across the country a swarm of much larger drones slams into
the Golden Gate Bridge, destroying one of the nation’s
landmarks. When the debris is collected the forensics team
make a frightening discovery. Each of the drones was
developed and built by the U.S. military. The attacks
escalate as a computer virus infects the autopilot of a
commercial airline, effectively turning it into a drone. The
resulting crash destroys an entire neighborhood. Two days
later a squadron of F-15s is remote hijacked, and the
resulting devastation leaves an entire Air Force base in
flames. Someone has developed software that can turn any
aircraft into a drone.
Joe Ledger and the DMS begin a desperate search for the
secret to this new technology and the madmen behind it. But
before they can close in on the enemy the virus infects Air
Force One. The president is trapped aboard as the jet heads
toward the heart of New York City. It has become PREDATOR ONE.
