The years between 1968 and 1973 were a kind of golden age of airline hijacking. Whether done for ransom money, escape, or to draw attention to a cause, hijackings occurred on a nearly weekly basis. In his chronicle of these incidents and how they changed air travel, Koerner, a Wired contributing editor and author of Now the Hell Will Start, has written a compelling blend of true crime and history.
