Hijacking Definition: 1. Illegally seize (an aircraft, ship, or vehicle) in transit and force it to go to a different destination or use it for one's own purposes

2. Steal (goods) by seizing them in transit

3. Take over (something) and use it for a different purpose

When an aircaft is hijacked it is called skyjacking.
9/11 The most famous hijacking occurence happened on September 11, 2011.
Almost 3000 people died in the attacks As long as there have been vehicles, there have been incidents of hijacking. The first skyjacking incident was reported in 1948. Hijacking is most often used by suicidal extremists,
solely for the purpose of creating fear and/or gaining political recognition. However,
hijacking is also used to gain power or money. Hh Hijacking has become harder in recent years as countries strengthen thier international borders and airport security. However, some have have still managed to get onto planes with explosives. WRITE THIS DOWN: Hijacking occurs internationally, wherever vehicles exist. Hijacking has become much more difficult in recent years, due to the increasing level of security prompted by the 9/11 attacks. As a result, the number of succesful hijacks has been declining. Four planes were hijacked by Muslim extremists. Two were flown into the Twin Towers, and one was crashed into the Pentagon, while the third crashed into a field after heroic efforts by the planes passengers and flight crew.
