50 YEARS AGO FEBRUARY 4, 1971: BOBBY GOLDSBORO AND BAND ON AIRPLANE HIJACKED TO CUBA MIAMI, Feb. 4 (UPI)—A man who said he was carrying explosives hijacked a jetliner today carrying 27 persons and got out in Havana with a cheery “Right on, baby.” “Sorry to inconvenience you,” the hijacker said as he left the plane, “but this will give you a chance to see Cuba.” The Delta Airlines DC9, carrying 23 passengers and four crewmen, was commandeered shortly after leaving Chicago this morning, bound for Nashville, Tenn. It flew directly to Cuba and returned to Miami shortly after 4:30 P.M. Among the passengers were the singer, Bobby Goldsboro, and his musicians. Mr. Goldsboro described the hijacker as a well-dressed Negro who handed the stewardess a note that she passed to the captain, Richard Blizzard of Miami, while the hijacker remained in his seat in the tourist section of the plane.   Bobby’s fascinating account of the adventure will   be posted later, but click here to read the pilot   Dick Blizzard’s memory of the event from Sylvia   Wrigley’s “Fear of Landing” site, including fuel   supply miracle and nitro in turbulence:
