A Zhejiang Airlines Airbus A300 with 54 passengers and five crew members was hijacked to Taiwan during a domestic night from Hangzhou (HGH) to Fuzhou (FOC). Forty minutes after takeoff, a 35-year old Chinese man sent a note to the crew via the flight attendant claiming that he was carrying explosives and demanding to be flown to Taiwan. Upon arrival in Taipei, the hijacker surrendered peacefully and was found to be unarmed. The alleged bomb brandished by the man turned out to be two bars of soap wrapped in newspaper with a wire protruding from the side.
