In particular, they wanted to know where the two security guards were. As clever and exciting as it may have been, the sky marshal ruse, which took place in broad daylight with airport personnel swarming about and probably under someone’s binoculared surveillance, did not fool anyone. But El Al officials denied that the two had boarded the other plane and claimed that the two had somehow disappeared. The police, who boarded the second plane, couldn’t identify the two men, who were now holding tickets.
Less than two weeks later, on February 21, a Swissair plane was blown up after takeoff from Zurich for Tel Aviv. Forty-seven passengers died, including fifteen Israelis. That same day, a bomb exploded aboard an Austrian airliner carrying mail to Israel, but the plane landed safely. Then, on July 22, 1970, the PFLP hijacked an Olympic Airways jet en route from Beirut to Athens, diverting it to Cairo. Through the intervention of the International Red Cross and André Rochat (who substituted himself as a hostage for the passengers on the plane) but against Israel’s urgings, Greece agreed to release its seven Palestinian terrorist prisoners (the five above plus two others jailed for an attack on the El Al office in Athens on November 27, 1969, in which a Greek boy was killed) in return for the hijacked plane and passengers.

Between six and nine guerrillas then boarded the plane with a suitcase full of grenades and explosives. One terrorist, Mazen Abu-Mehanna, stayed aboard after the others deplaned. A Lebanese cabinet minister who came to the control tower implored the hijackers to release the passengers, or at least the women and children.
