How airline hijackings ended in the good old days
Crime, Guns, and Videotape has the story. And the aftermath.
As I remember, back in the 60s one airline (Frontier?) didn't care if you carried, and the others cared but really couldn't do much since airports didn't have metal detectors.
Great story, thanks for sharing that.

That wasn't the only case of a hijacker being shot on an airplane. The Captain of an airliner shot a would-be highjacker on the ground in Cleveland.
