MIAMI (AP) The pilot of the first United States plane hijacked to Cuba since 1972 said he feared for his life after the gunman threatened to shoot him in the leg if he tried anything. "I was Tampa charter pilot Frank Haigney said after his safe return here Monday night. "I asked him nine or 10 times not to shoot me." Haigney, 30, said the gunman talked little during the flight and the only reason he gave for the hijacking was that "he was tired of living in the United States and it was his mission to go to Cuba." The man, described by Haigney as being in his early 40s, was taken into custody by Cuban officials on his arrival in Havana Saturday night. FBI officials, attempting to identify the hijacker, said they would seek to have him returned to the U.S. The hijacker used the name Robin Harrison when he char- tered the plane. The hijacking of the twin- engine Piper Seneca was the first in the U.S. to wind up in Cuba since Nov. when three men took over a Southern Airways jetliner on a flight to Montgomery, Ala. The men, who held 27 passengers and four crew members hostage for 29 hours, are in custody in Cuba.
