A 24-year old armed male Haitian commandeered a Missionary Flight International DC-3 aircraft as it prepared for a scheduled flight to West Palm Beach,
Florida, from Cap Haitien and demanded to be flown to Miami. The man forced his way onto the plane by taking a woman passenger hostage. A shot was fired before the plane took off. The plane refueled without incident at Turks and Caicos Islands before flying to Miami, where the hijacker surrendered peacefully to federal authorities. The nine passengers and two crew members on board were unharmed. The hijacker was later charged with one count of air piracy and released, in Miami, on $100,000 bond guaranteed by prominent Haitian exile activists.
