Beschrijving:
While airborne a hijacker entered the cockpit and brandishing a knife demanded to be flown to Cuba. He claimed there were several bombs aboard which he could detonate at will. The co-pilot struggled with the hijacker and was wounded in the process. With the help of some of the passengers the hijacker was subdued upon landing at Villavicencio, Colombia. He was taken into custody by Colombian officials. Search of the aircraft failed to reveal any explosives devices.
