Beschrijving:
Iraqi Airways Flight 163, a Boeing 737-200 with 91 passengers and 15 crewmembers and security officers, was on a scheduled flight from Baghdad, Iraq, to Amman, Jordan.
About 55 minutes into the flight, while entering Saudi Arabian airspace at FL260 (8000 m), four hijackers tried to enter the cockpit. When Iraqi Airways security personnel tried to intervene, a hand grenade was thrown into the passenger cabin.
An emergency descent was initiated immediately. As the aircraft was descending through FL160, a hand grenade exploded in the cockpit. Approaching Arar, control was lost and the aircraft crash-landed, broke in two and caught fire.
