Passenger Taken off Russian Plane After Runway Standoff

Herpa Aeroflot TU-134A 1/500 Nord
There was a disturbance Thursday on a Russian plane flying to Moscow from Mineralniye Vody in the country's Stavropol region. While police have described it as a "hijack scare", reports are sketchy about exactly what happened. What is clear is the plane landed safely in Moscow, where it was isolated. When a passenger fell ill the "hijacker" allowed medical personnel to come aboard. But instead he got FSB agents disguised as doctors, and the suspect was quickly taken into custody.
