Some minutes ago, an Air Afrique A320 was hijacked over Libya and flown to Malta.

Use Planefinder Playback for this morning to follow the flight. Set the playback time to 09:55 to see the aircraft squawking 7500 (hijack).

The aircraft is flight AW209, reg 5A-ONB

It was an Afriqiyah A320 not Air Afrique. My photo of it on Apron 4 at Malta during the hijack.
