Priest At My Church Was On Hijacked TWA 847

Sun Nov 12, 2006 3:52 am

Hi,

I was at Mass last weekend and the priest started telling us about when he was hijacked in 1985. He told us that it was on TWA 847 that was heading from Athens to Rome.

I have known him for several years and never knew that. He said that he is shown on an ABC video "17 Days of Terror."

He was with the Catholic group from Northern Illinois going on a trip to the Middle East.

He still lives in the Area, Algonquin, IL and kept in contact with may of the people (most of whom are dead including the purser, captain, and several passengers).

I am going to ask him more about it later.
