Ly Tong's name is both revered and notorious. He deserves more jail time or more accolades -- it all depends on who you're talking to. One thing is for sure: In 1992, he hijacked a Vietnamese Airlines Airbus A310-200 and then parachuted out of it into a swamp. AVweb's Glenn Pew learns more.

Editor's Note:
Ly Tong speaks with a strong accent. He spoke from his own scripted response to our questions, which allowed us to provide a transcript, the PDF of which you can download here and read along while you listen.
