Air France Flight 8969 Hijacking - Franch Swat GIGN Raid

On Christmas Eve 1994 and as the civil war was tearing up Algeria, a group of 4 Algerian Islamic terrorists highjacked an Air France Plane in Alger airport's tarmac.

After two days of negotiation, and because of the French Government, who didn't trust Algerian Ninja team (local name for the SWAT teams) to lead an assault without a massacre among passengers, demand the Algerian authorities to be so, the plane was let to take off to Paris.

But the energy consumed during a two days standby had hadn't left enough fuel to get to Paris, so they land at Marseille, officially to get some fuel. However, French authorities had decided that whatever the cost should be, the plane wouldn't take off from Marseille, and here comes the assault.

The intelligence revealed that the terrorists wanted to make some kind of 9/11 like attack on Paris, whether by making it crash on a building or blowing it up in the air right above the city.

Apparently, they got the lesson and decide to highjack the plane only once it was in the air for the 9/11 attack.

    Nice to see the French kick some ass.

  • Get everyone out, clear the area and rig it to blow... or drop a JDAM! BOOM! No virgins for you :)
    Pretty intense firefight, the SWAT team was pretty insane, they were running up and down the stairs, jumping into the plane and out of the plane, hanging from the plane, jumping from the plane and running around everywhere! I think those guys deserved a nice cold beer and a good lap dance at the local club after that show! lol Bravo!
    Serious not- Glad they didn't allow the plane to fly again. I ca More..

  • why not use a staircase to go up to the open window and toss in a grenade! Or next time a satchel charge!

    Make sure they don't keep trying this, desecrate the bodies! They do it to us, why should we hold back and "look" weak to them. Behead the SOBs so they go to paradise without a head! Blow them up so they can only fuck a bowl of soup!

    Not all muslims are bad, only the ones who try shit like this!

    Civil War - Imperical code for fighting foreign controlled government.
    Algerian Islamic Terrorists - As opposed to French Imperialist terrorists?

    Algeria's 'islamic' movements lost popular support after civillian casualties.

And the party begun.

      And after three years of it, the inhabitants of a village they want to punish (aka slit the throat of each and every of them till the last kid) got back the old guns of t More..
