Stansted Hijack Boeing 737 EL-AIL

Does anyone have additional info regarding a hijack of an Air Liberia Boeing 737 EL-AIL to Stansted on or around 9th December 1978?
Thanks, Tom

I spent my formative years growing up in Stansted village and as a avid STN spotter, in those rather quiet days, recall it was perhaps the most exciting thing ever to be recorded in the Bishops Stortford Observer newspaper (perhaps until the FA cup tie Bishops Stortford v Middlesborough and the later Ariana hijack!)
