Lufthansa B737 hijacked in 1977 returns to Germany

Sun Sep 24, 2017 2:22 am

A Lufthansa aircraft that was hijacked to Somalia 40 years ago has returned home. The Boeing 737 arrived Saturday in the German city of Friedrichshafen, where it will be reassembled and displayed at the Dornier Museum. The parts arrived aboard two freight aircraft from Brazil. The aircraft ended up in a Brazilian carrier's fleet and had been sitting decommissioned at the country's Fortaleza Airport for years.

On October 13,1977 four militants of the RAF-allied Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine hijacked Mallorca-Frankfurt flight LH 181, demanding the release of 11 RAF members.
