An attempt to hijack an Aeroflot Tupolev 134 passenger aircraft to Turkey failed when the 30-year old Soviet female hijacker was overpowered. The plane was on a domestic flight from Sochi to Rostov-on-Don. The hijacker, who was accompanied on the flight by her 2-year old daughter, threatened to detonate an explosive device. When the flight landed at its original destination, the hijacker was overpowered and arrested by Soviet authorities. A knife and hammer reportedly were confiscated from her.
