Before very much can be done, Bond sets off in hot pursuit of the bombmaker that explodes onto the Miami International tarmac. As Bond is arrested by airport security - having stopped a tanker truck from speeding headlong into the new Skyfleet plane - Bond watches slyly as Carlos is blown up by his own detonator.
