"The president's safe on Air Force One with Colonel Rhodes. I think we're good, here." "Sir, this is Colonel Rhodes. They're using the Iron Patriot as a Trojan horse. They're gonna take out the president somehow."
Iron Man used his Telepresence Headset to fly his Mark XLII suit to the plane to save the President. The armor arrived too late, but Stark stopped Savin before he could parachute out of the plane. Savin blows a hole in the plane causing all the trapped passengers to fall out of the plane. Stark kills Savin with a repulsor blast from his chest piece through Savin's heart. Stark then uses the armor to save the falling passengers.
