An unarmed individual hijacked a Colombian airliner on a domestic flight. Intercontinental de Aviacion Flight 217, a DC-9 aircraft, was on its scheduled route from Arauca to Bogota when, ten minutes into the flight, the lone hijacker announced his intentions to his fellow passengers and entered the flight cabin. The plane landed without incident at Eldorado Airport in Bogota and was surrounded by security personnel. The hijacker, whose apparent only demand was to speak with President César Gaviria, was overpowered by one of the bodyguards of a congressman aboard the plane and placed under arrest. None of the reported 81 persons aboard was injured.
