Unfallbericht:
An attempt to hijack an Aeroflot TU-154 aircraft, on a domestic flight from Barnaul to Moscow, failed when police arrested the three hijackers. During the flight a note given to a flight attendant indicated that "high-yield explosives" were aboard the aircraft. The hijackers demanded to be flown to the United States, via Germany and Iceland. The aircraft, with 65 passengers and seven crew members, landed in Moscow and was stormed by a police commando unit. One hijacker was injured in the assault. No weapons or explosives were found by the authorities.
