Story of the January 11, 1969 United Airlines Skyjacking signed by the Skyjacker himself. Held prisoner in Cuba after his arrival in 1969, Helmey was later acquited of his crimes due to temporary insanity. Was he really a CIA operative on his way to Cuba to assassinate Fidel Castro??? What we do know is that his story is compelling enough in one way or another to have gotten him acquitted for air piracy and taking control of a commercial United Airlines flight.
