Man Who Hijacked Plane Now Works at Heathrow

A man who was part of a gang that hijacked an Afghani airplane in 2000 is now working as a janitor at Heathrow airport.  Nazamuddin Mohammidy was one of 9 people who hijacked an Ariana Airlines 727 in Afghanistan and demanded to be flown to England, which they were.  Long story short, the hijackers were allowed to stay in England.

Mohammidy eventually took a job with a company that provided cleaning crews to British Airways’ training center at Heathrow.  This whole story came to light because he was arrested after being caught driving a car around Heathrow’s Terminal 5 without a license.  Fret not – he was released after that arrest and is back working at the airport.

  1. Fret not – he was released after that arrest and is back working at the airport. Love the dry humor… ^^

    Next time I fly into T5, I guess my luggage won’t be my only worry now … ah, maybe the bathroom also?

    Maybe they should investigate whether 1 of the other 8 is learning how to fly….
