Armed with an axe and a fire extinguisher, three men hijack Ethiopian Airlines Flight 961 on November 23, 1996 - killing 125. Through first-person accounts from the 52 survivors, Air Emergency recreates this horrific and terrifying flight that crashes into the ocean off the coast of Africa. NGC shows you how the pilot tricks the hijackers by unsuspectingly changing the flight route demanded and recounts his heroic emergency landing attempt. Written by Anonymous
