The CBS Morning News with MIKE WALLACE. The story of a 16 year old boy, THOMAS RAVINSON, who tried to hijack a commercial jet en route from New Orleans to Miami. With two handguns Ravinson attempted to reroute the plane to Cuba so that he may join the fight against Castro's communist forces. Instead he was subdued by several passengers--some of whom happened to be NASA scientists on the Gemini project-- but not before putting six bullet holes into the floorboard. MS's of police investigators checking out the holes; CU's of the bulletholes. MS's of Ravinson being led through a Lousiana federal building by two FBI field agents. CU interviews of the scientists talking about what happened.
