An attacker fired a rocket at a Royal Jordanian Airlines Boeing 727 aircraft in Athens, Greece. The attack occurred while the aircraft, with 62 passengers and a crew of 13 aboard, was preparing to take off for Amman, Jordan. The rocket struck the aircraft approximately 30 feet aft of the forward entry door, but failed to explode. The attacker, who fired at the plane from near the runway, dropped the rocket launcher and ran to a waiting car. After returning to the terminal, an examination of the aircraft
revealed a gash eight inches long and one half inch deep where the rocket struck the aircraft. There were no injuries reported.

The attack was made from the east side of the airport perimeter where workers were laying pipe. The Palestinian organization, Black September, has claimed responsibility for the attack.
