Dial History

Loading...
A powerful look at the history of plane hijackings. "Romantic" skyjackers fought their revolutions and won airtime on the passenger planes of the 1960's and 70's.

Combines archival news footage of hijackings with an array of enticing images, from the surreal to the ordinary.
