Beschrijving:
The Boeing 727 operated on a flight from Beirut to Amman on June 11. Shortly before takeoff 5 Shiite Arab men armed with automatic weapons and explosives, hijacked the airplane. They demanded to be flown to Tunis. Due to fuel shortage, the flight was diverted to Larnaca, Cyprus. Permission to land at Tunis was refused, so the flight diverted to Palermo. After refueling there, the aircraft was flown back to Beirut. In the early morning of June 12 (01:45) the aircraft took off again, but returned again after two hours. All occupants (three pilots, six flight attendants, eight sky marshals and about 65 passengers) were released and the plane was blown up using explosives.
