A China Northern Airlines McDonnell Douglas MD-82 aircraft with 73 passengers and nine crew members was hijacked to Taiwan during a domestic flight from Changchun to Fuzhou. The two Chinese male hijackers, ages 35 and 40, demanded to be flown to Taiwan. They were armed with scalpels and carried a blood pressure gauge which they claimed was a bomb. The aircraft subsequently landed safely in Taipei, where the hijackers surrendered peacefully to Taiwanese authorities and immediately requested political asylum. In a departure from the procedure used in previous hijackings of Chinese aircraft this year, Taiwanese authorities searched the airliner for spying devices and questioned each passenger and crew member individually before permitting the aircraft to return to the mainland.
