Beschrijving:
Philippine Air Lines flight 116 was en route between Davao City and Manila, Philippines on May 21, 1976 when six passengers hijacked the aircraft and forced the crew to land at Zamboanga. They demanded a ransom of USD 375,000 and a plane to fly them to Libya. At Zamboanga the aircraft was surrounded by troops and armoured military vehicles.
The next day the hijackers allowed five women and nine children to leave aircraft in return for a supply of food and water form the authorities.
On May 23, security forces tried to storm the plane and a gun battle broke out, during which some grenades were set off by the hijackers. Ten passengers and three hijackers were killed. The remaining 3 hijackers were caught and sentenced to death.
