On November 10, 1969, David Booth set another record. The 14-year-old was the youngest person in history to attempt a hijacking when he tried to commandeer a Delta Airlines flight from Cincinnati to Chicago. The U.S. Attorney’s office, under whose jurisdiction the crime fell, declined to prosecute Booth, saying it didn’t have the resources to prosecute a juvenile.
