An attempt to hijack an Aeroflot passenger jet on a domestic flight from Leningrad to Arkhangelsk failed when the hijacker was arrested by authorities. The hijacker, who claimed to have an explosive device in his briefcase, demanded to be flown to Stockholm, Sweden. The crew convinced the hijacker that the plane needed to land at Arkhangelsk for refueling. Following negotiations, the 66 passengers aboard the flight were released. The hijacker was then arrested. No explosives were found.
