After landing, the aircraft was immediately surrounded by armed revolutionary soldiers. They demanded to be flown to another destination but the pilot refused.
The stand-off continued for 10 days. On March 2, the soldiers abruptly informed the pilot that their revolution had been successful. They let him go, in return for giving one of them a lift into Lima.
