Unfallbericht:
The flight engineer shot the on board security guard and forced the crew to carry him to Florida, USA. The captain instead took the plane to José Martí Airport in Havana. On seeing an Aeroflot plane on the tarmac, the hijacker realised he had been fooled, shot the captain dead and tried to initiate takeoff. The copilot then shut down the engines. The hijacker jumped onto the tarmac and fled. He was caught some days later.
