A man (C) who attempted to hijack an airliner from Ukraine is escorted by police after the plane was forced down on Febuary 7, 2014 at Sabiha Goksen airport in Istanbul. Turkey scrambled two F-16 jets Friday to force down an airliner from Ukraine when an apparently drunk would-be hijacker ordered it to Sochi where the Winter Olympics opening ceremony was underway. The Ukrainian man, brandishing what he said was a detonator, tried to gain access to the cockpit of the aircraft operated by Turkey's Pegasus Airlines with 110 people on board, officials said.
