On 6 September 1970, a BOAC flight with over 20 school children on board was hijacked by the Palestinian guerrilla group PFLP. It was the first and last time a British commercial aircraft has ever been hijacked. Furthermore the plan for the hijack attempts included four more planes. Only one attempt wasn't successful because the crew of El Al flight 219 fought back, killed one of the guerrillas and captured a female Palestinian hijacker, Leila Khaled. She later was released in return for the hostages of the other three hijacked airplanes. This remains the only time a British Government has openly negotiated with terrorists.moreless
