Hans Remembers- Wednesday July 22, 1970- 50 Years Ago.

  • Another hijacking- in that era of hijacking- but this one wasn’t in the United States- Olympic Airways Flight 255 was hijacked by six Arab terrorists shortly after takeoff on a flight from Beirut to Athens. Their demands were the release of seven members of their group who were in Greek jails- two of which were awaiting trial for a 1969 attack that had killed a Greek child and injured 13 others. When the jet landed in Athens the terrorists released everyone but the crew of seven and a civilian hostage to Cairo, where they surrendered after Greece complied with their demands.
