Report Of Hijacking: National Airlines 757 @ JFK

Fri Jul 28, 2000 12:05 pm

WPVI-TV in Philadelphia and the Associated Press are reporting that a man armed with a handgun has taken a flight crew hostage on a National Airlines 757. Anyone else have further details?

Confirms my post of 2 minutes prior to yours...

Local ABC station in Milwaukee is reporting the same thing on the 10 p.m. news. Said only pilot and co-pilot were on board. Details seemed very fuzzy, looked like somebody had handed the anchor a piece of paper and told him to read it.

Apparently nobody is on the plane except for the cockpit crew. Hopefully it will end soon and peacefully.
