Hijacked: A Critical Change of Plans

In January of 1980, a Delta L1011 was hijacked to Cuba. The crew was hopeful the hijacker would surrender there, but instead, he demanded fuel to fly to Iran. This is the true story of how the crew forced the hijacker to surrender in Cuba. The aircraft, crew, and passengers safely returned to Miami. Arthur Krull, who was on the flight crew that day, captures the suspense and frustrations as the very fluid situation was met with seemingly endless changes of plans, while dealing with the governments of Cuba, Iran, and the United States.
