In the fall of 1969, Raffaele Minichiello, a multi-decorated Italian American Marine and 19-year-old Vietnam veteran, boarded a TWA flight to San Francisco in Los Angeles. He was armed. In the following 48 hours he carried out the first transoceanic hijacking in history, with Rome as final destination . The incredible story of Raffaele Minichiello inspired the character of Rambo, played by Sylvester Stallone in the homonymous cult of the 80s directed by Ted Kotcheff.
