Disguised as American serviceman "Adams", a Russian soldier accompanied his superiors, Colonels Antonin Dovchenko and Irina Spalko, to infiltrate Hangar 51 in Nevada in 1957 in search of the Roswell remains.
In 1957, Adams and his comrades, disguised as US military soldiers, helped Colonels Antonin Dovchenko and Irina Spalko to infiltrate Hangar 51 in Nevada, USA in order to acquire the Roswell remains. They also captured American archaeologist Indiana Jones and his colleague George McHale in the process.
After Jones identified the crate in which the remains were stored, Spalko moved in to open the container. Adams held Jones at gunpoint while many of Adams' fellow soldiers gathered around the box. Adams' curiosity to see the contents for himself got the better of him and the distraction allowed Jones to slam the weapon's barrel back up into the soldier's face and disable him with a punch.
Behind the scenesEdit
The role of "Adams" was played uncredited by stuntman Kevin Patrick Burke in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Like many of the Soviet Special Forces who infiltrated Hangar 51, Adams shares his name with a US president, in his case John Adams.
The scene in Crystal Skull where Indiana Jones disarms Franklin originally included a gag in which Jones used his whip to make Franklin shoot Adams dead before taking the former's gun. While cut from the final edit of the film, this moment is retained in the film's novelization and comic book adaptation. Rehearsal footage for the scene was included in the featurette Production Diary: Making of "The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull".
