~ Ryan Weaver.

Ryan Weaver is the main antagonist in the 1997 film Turbulence.

He is portrayed by the late Ray Liotta, who also portrayed Ray Sinclair in the 1986 film Something Wild, Henry Hill in the 1990 film Goodfellas, Pete Davis in the 1992 film Unlawful Entry, Paul Krendler in the 2001 film Hannibal, Samuel Rhodes in the 2003 film Identity, Dorothy Macha in the 2005 film Revolver, Gallian in the 2007 film In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, Tommy Vercetti in the 2002 video game Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Billy Handsome in the 2010 video game Call of Duty: Black Ops II.


Weaver is a serial killer known as The Lonely Hearts Strangler. As a child, he tortured and killed squirrels, birds, and cats; as an adult, he tortures and kills women. He gets arrested for a murder he claims he did not commit, and is transported on a plane to Los Angeles to face trial. He is accompanied by four air marshals and Stubbs, another criminal who is also awaiting trial.

During the flight, Stubbs breaks free while using the bathroom and begins a shootout with the marshals. A stray bullet fired from one of the marshals' sidearms punches a hole in the fuselage, instantly triggering an explosive decompression. Amidst the chaos, the captain is fatally shot and the first officer dies when his head slams into the yoke, disengaging the autopilot in the process. Weaver frees himself and attempts to save the last remaining marshal, but fails when both Stubbs shoots the marshal dead, after being shot himself.

One of the stewardesses on board the flight, Teri Halloran, is forced to take control of the plane now that the pilots are dead, and discovers that they are heading towards an intense hurricane. Meanwhile, Weaver gets drunk and reveals that he is apparently on a suicide mission with the intention of crashing the plane. He locks the passengers in the crew's cabin and rapes one of the stewardesses before fatally strangling her.

Weaver calls the FBI control center at LAX and threatens to crash the plane into their facility. His motives had become clear to Teri after she speaks, via the aircraft's radio, with Hines.

As Halloran tries to safely land the plane, Weaver sneaks into the avionics bay and alters the circuitry, causing the plane to nearly crash. However, Halloran eventually regains control of the plane and Weaver breaks into the cockpit with the intention of killing her. After a brief struggle, Halloran retrieves a. 38 revolver that one of the marshals was forced to unload and turn over to the captain upon boarding and load it with a bullet that fell out of the man's pocket. Weaver taunts Halloran that she can't kill him as she is against capital punishment, but Halloran declares that she's changed her mind before shooting Weaver in the head, killing him instantly.
