Malaysian Airlines System 653


By Patrick Mondout
On December 4, 1977, a Malaysian Airlines System (MAS) 737 was hijacked en route between Penang and Kuala Lumpur. Witnesses saw the aircraft descend from an altitude of 21,000 feet to a few thousand feet before leveling off. The aircraft then plunged into a swamp 30 miles southwest of Johor Baharu, Malaysia. All 93 passengers and 7 crew were killed.
Investigators later determined that both pilots must have been shot.

If Japanese Red Army was really behind its hijacking, I don't feel sorry for collateral damange resulted from nuclear bomb runs over Japan during WW2. :)
