she was asking him questions as trained to do and dealing with her own fear

Skyjack71,

When I get home (Monday), I’ll put on my thinking cap and see what I can come up with.

I have an old friend that I have only communicated with once in the last thirty years. I had her contact information in 2002 and we sent each other a few e-mails, so maybe it’s still good. She was a United Airlines Cabin Attendant in the late sixties (64 – 70). I will try to contact her and find out if they received any “special training” to handle hijackers. Maybe she knows about the kind of questions that would be asked.

However, remember, in 1971 there had been very few (if any) domestic hijackings. The training might have been related more to the “Fly this plane to Cuba” type of hijacking.

Later,

Sluggo_Monster
