How to use "Hijack" in context?

When someone says the word "hijack," it conjures up images of Peoples' Liberation Front (PLF) terrorists storming a plane, pistol-waving hijackers taking over a passenger jet, or brazen criminals commandeering a car. Ironically, the "flight attendants" responsible for safety and security on a plane are usually the ones who are the most solicitous of those fleeing a hijack.

The word "hijack" comes from the Dutch word "hijacken," which means "to seize suddenly and forcibly, especially by force of arms." In the U.S.
