Beschrijving:
A man pulled out a sawed off rifle and asked demanded to be flown to Singapore. The first officer armed himself with a fire hatchet, came back to the passenger cabin and smashed the hijacked across the wrist. The rifle discharged sending a bullet through the plane's ceiling. After the man had been overpowered two sticks of dynamite were found under his seat.
