A DC8 arrived, here-at 2:20 p.m. en route to -Tokyo via Karachi and Bangkok. A second DC8 left Libya's Benghazi airport today for Tokyo via Amsterdam, and Anchorage, Alaska, the same polar route being flown by the 747 when it was hijacked last Friday |hijackers whose motives were! still clouded in mystery. In Tel Aviv, the newspaper iMa'ariv reported that Israeli intelligence learned of the hijacking attempt several days before the plane was hijacked lover Europe last Friday but that the Japanese and their security services ignored war nings. JAL President Shizou Asada was the first off the plane and [was followed by the crew of the 747 and then by the passengers. They smiled and waved their hands to waiting newsmen and photographers. Most of the The olane arriving here passengers were in short brought 10? of tta 3r passen- sleeved shirts and some were in gers and crew of the JAL their stocking feet, jumbo jet that was^blown up at The four hijackers-three the Benghazi airport by four Arabs and a Japanese-were remaining in Benghazi where a special Libyan government commission was investigating them with a view to possible trial. Their action has been denounced by a number of Palestinian organizations as harmful to the Arab cause. The plane arriving in Athens was the same DCS which flew Asada to the Persian Gulf sheikhdom of Dubai, where the hijackers held the jumbo jet for three days under the blazing desert sun with a threat to destroy the plane and all aboard if there was any interference. JAL officials in Athens worked through the morning to prepare supplies of everything from overnight bags to new shoes, socks, stockings, whiskey and cigarettes for the arrivals. The passengers fled the plane by emergency chutes only a few minutes before it was destroyed, leaving all their possessions aboard. The unsourced report on the front page of Ma'ariv, Israel's No. 1 circulation newspaper, did not say who delivered the warning to the Japanese but left the reader to draw conclusion that it was Israeli secret service.

"Simultaneous scientific research by the two stations will make it possible to obtain fuller data about the planet and the dynamics of physical processes that occur in space," Tass said in announcing the Mars 5 launch.
