Two men, armed with a homemade gun, two hand grenades and an Armalite rifle wrested from a soldier passenger, hijacked a DC-3. They ordered the pilot to fly to Cebu City, where they released 12 passengers, and then continued to Manila.
After three hours of negotiations they released the remaining 13 passengers and three crew members.
One of the hijackers claimed that he was convicted on false evidence and that the trial judge was biased. President Ferdinand Marcos intervened with an offer of "conditional pardon" and both hijackers surrendered.
