Narrative:
An attempt to hijack an Aeroflot Tupolev 134 to Iraq failed when the crew continued on course and landed at Syktyvkar. The plane was en route from Moscow when a 62-year old invalid pensioner passed a note to a stewardess demanding that the plane change course. After receiving assurances from security personnel that all luggage had been thoroughly screened, the crew continued to Syktyvkar, where the hijacker was arrested. No explosives were found.
