Description
Beginning in 1968 a wave of airline hijackings swept across the skies over America. There were nearly 150 hijackings of U.S. commercial flight over the next five years. The most audacious of these air pirates were the parachute hijackers, starting with 'D.B. Cooper' and ending with the hijacking of American Airlines Flight 119, the most daring of them all. John Wigger's gripping account of this period is based on fresh interviews and first-hand accounts from FBI agents, flight attendants, pilots, and passengers who were swept up in the heist and the hunt for the hijacker.
