At the KDPV, an FBI agent stripped down to his underpants brings $ 1 million in a suitcase as ransom for 86 hostages, Miami, July 1972.

On July 31, 1972, George Wright and other members of this group seized a passenger plane of the American Delta Airlines in Miami. The terrorist dressed in a cassock and pretended to be a clergyman. He managed to carry a gun on board by hiding a weapon in the Bible.

88 people were taken hostage. For their release, Wright demanded a million dollars in cash. He put forward a condition: the money in the denominations of small denomination should bring the FBI agents, dressed only in swimming trunks. George and his assistants wanted to be sure that the agents would be unarmed. The authorities agreed. Photos of FBI agents in swimming trunks published then all American newspapers.

The terrorists released the passengers, but not the crew members. The pilots were ordered to fly first to Boston, where the liner had to refuel, and then to Algeria. The police of this country confiscated Wright's money, but neither he nor his friends detained him. After that, the hijackers disappeared without a trace.Some of them were arrested in Paris in 1976. George Wright was not among them.

The FBI has already despaired of finding a criminal, but after 40 years, in 2011, he ventured to contact his relatives in the United States. It turned out that all these years he was hiding in Portugal. There his local police took it.
