Hostage Rescue

September 1970. Within an hour of landing our C-130's in England, we were airborne and heading south. I stood in the flight deck as the navigator ripped open a sealed envelope and read it over the intercom to the rest of us. Terrorists had hijacked a commercial airliner and flown it to the desert somewhere in the Middle East.
