Détails:
A hijacker went to the front of the aircraft, said he wanted to see the captain, that he wanted to be flown to Cuba, and that a bomb would go off in 2 hours. He kicked the cockpit door and the crew opened it thinking it was a stewardess bringing food.
He grabbed and pushed the flight engineer with one hand, keeping the other in his pocket as though he had a weapon. During the
flight to Cuba, he indicated he was a pilot and that he had a gun in his pocket. After landing at Havana, Cuba, the Cubans found a
pocketknife in the hijacker's jacket. No bomb or other weapon was found. He was taken into custody by Cuban authorities.
