Default Hijacked 767 ditching (video)

The video is titled incorrectly once you get to YouTube.com. It is not a 707, but a 767 instead.

Truly a sad affair. Despite all pleas by the pilot - the hijackers forced him to run out of fuel , he was stabbed / shot a number of times. His co-pilot was killed out right...Despite it all he (pilot) did all he could and in the end 50 or so people were able to live thru that nightmare.

I thought the pilots both survived, LAFF?

I stand corrected. Both survived and continue to fly.
