Con Air is about a group of notorious convicts being transported by plane to a new maximum security prison and the chaos that ensues after they take over the air-craft while in flight. One prisoner, Cameron Poe, a parolee, just happened to be hitching a ride home when the hi-jacking occurred. Now the Marshall's office must rely on the help of one man, Cameron, a soon to be ex-con, to foil the convicts plan and bring the plane down safely.

Featured Animal Action
There is a scene where the convicts arrive at the air-strip to board the plane. A guard and his dog are patrolling the fence as the convoy of busses passes. The dog is seen barking. Trainer #1, working as an extra, walked the dog on his leash. Trainer #2, just off camera, hangs on the fence and signaled the dog to bark.
