In 1971, a man with sunglasses, a raincoat and a small attache case boarded a flight, lit a cigarette and calmly told his stewardess that he had a bomb and a handful of demands.

America was immediately enamored with the mysterious everyman, but who was he and what exactly happened that fateful, rainy night?
