A few minutes after departure from Tampa, FL, a male passenger threatened a flight attendant with a knife and forced her to sit in the seat beside him. He directed her to tell another flight attendant to tell the pilot to go to Cuba, whereupon the captain headed for Havana, Cuba.
When refreshments were served, the hijacker placed the knife on his seat between his legs in order to accept a drink with his free hand while holding the flight attendant with the other hand. Two passengers near the hijacker then attacked and subdued him.
The aircraft landed at Miami, FL and the hijacker was taken into custody. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison for air piracy.
