Détails:
According to the first officer, Dominik Chrobák, the Slovair flight Prague (PRG) - Marianske Lazne (MKA) was routine. Turnaround time at Marianske Lazne Airport was 20 minutes before the flight back to Prague. The Let 410 took place shortly after 16:00. Over Becov control point a passenger wielding a gun entered the flight deck and grabbed both pilots headphones shouting: "Fly to West Germany, otherwise I will shoot you dead!" Then sound of shot was heard. The captain, Ján Micica had been killed. The hijacker then threatened to shoot the copilot as well, demanding an immediate course to Munich.
The copilot told the hijacker that they did not have enough fuel to reach Munich and that he would land in nearest bigger city. Just after hijackers had seen "Glassfabrik" writing on a factory and western cars on the roads, a landing was performed on Weiding airstrip, just 600m long.
Ten hijackers (including three women, one with infant baby) escaped and water later caught by police.
