Armed men hijacked domestic Aria Air Tour flight 1492, a Yakovlev 40 aircraft, bound from Ahwaz to Bandar Abbas. The hijackers apparently were part of a group of four families demanding to be flown to the United States. The hijacking was foiled by members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), which is responsible for security on Iranian flights. During the ensuing struggle, one IRGC member was shot and a second stabbed. A flight attendant and five hijackers were also injured. The plane landed safely at Bandar Abbas Airport, and the hijacking ended when the pilots escaped from the cockpit. The hijackers and their families, a total of 23 people, were placed under arrest.
