A hijacker ordered the crew to divert to Dong Hoi, North Vietnam. The pilot told him an intermediate stop at Dong Ha, North Vietnam was necessary. The flight actually landed at Hue, South Vietnam. The hijacker detonated explosives when realizing he was tricked. A hole measuring 2 by 3 meters was blown in the port side of the fuselage and three starboard windows were broken.
