A 24-year old male passenger brandished what looked like a revolver and hijacked the Boeing 727 some 15 minutes after departure from Nagoya, Japan. The flight landed at Hamamatsu Air Force Base, where the hijacker demanded a rifle and bullets and two cans of gasoline.
The pilot judged that the hijackers weapon looked like a toy gun and persuaded him to release a pregnant passenger through the rear exit. Policemen entered the aircraft as the passenger was released and arrested the hijacker.
The hijacker stated that he wanted to commit suicide after a broken relationship, but couldn't. He then hijacked the aircraft, hoping to get shot by a soldier at the air base.
