Exactly 30 years ago on this day a Sri Lankan national hijacked an Al-Italia Boeing 747 flight.

The aircraft was flying 35,000 feet in the air and was carrying 340 passengers at the time of the hijacking.

But his intentions were noble since he hijacked the plane in return for his wife and child.

Most people have forgotten this incident but we spoke to Sepala Ekanayake who remembers every minute of it.
