SQ 117 hijack to be made into a TV documentary....

SQ 117 True Hijack Story as related by a former steward who was working on that flight.

In 1991 March 26, Singapore Airlines Flight SQ117 was hijacked at 10:15 pm. The Airbus, carrying 118 passengers and eleven crew members (9 cabin 2 cockpit crew), was a shuttle service from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore. Four passengers, who claimed they were members of the Pakistan People's Party, commandeered the plane during the flight.

Below is the true story written by a former SIA steward who was on the hijacked flight. In the story, Toby told about his anguish,fear and close brush with death........

A reputable news company is trying to contact those crew and staff who were involved in the case to assist them in a TV documentary. 
They are trying to get in touch with IFS Phillip Cheong and his crew of SQ 117 as well as Capt Stanley, the director of cabin crew whom I believe was T.O Thoeng.

Please email me if you know of the above people's contact.

Uncle BT, Midiacorp should invite you as a consultant to make a series of SIA show, with each episode featuring one of your blog's real stories. I am sure the rating will be very high.
