Please tell us what you think about the Hijacked Flights map feature.

On September 6, 1970, in the skies over Europe, four armed teams of Palestinian Marxist terrorists leapt into action on four airplane flights. Three of the teams successfully redirected their planes and 310 hostages to the Middle East. Days later, a fifth group hijacked another plane and landed it at the same Jordanian airfield.

Track the coordinated hijackings on this interactive map and find out what happened next.
