Fortaleza, Brazil (BR)
The "Landshut" became famous October 13. 1977 when it was hijacked with 91 passengers and crew members by 4 Palestinian terrorists as Flight 181 from Palma de Mallorca to Frankfurt/Main over Marseilles, France.

At a stop in Aden the Captain, Jürgen Schumann, was killed by the terrorist and his body thrown out of the plane.

October 18. in Mogadishu, Somalia, the German Anti terror Corps GSG-9 stormed the plane killing 3 of the terrorists and wounded the 4th. female terrorist. She now lives in Oslo, Norway.

Since the discovery of the plane in Brazil the German government is trying to get the plane back to Germany as an important historical item.
