Inexperienced soldiers were immediately thrown into the most difficult of military training. Words would have been useless anyway, as we hadn't been taught any French up to this point.

They chose to fly to Munich as it was the nearest large city in West Germany. They wanted to spare passengers any unnecessary moments of fear. They knew Germany wouldn't extradite them to Poland, although they expected to end up in jail for some time. At the Budapest airport, Paszkowski carried the basket. With no difficulty at all, both men proceeded through what then passed for airport security in Budapest and boarded a Polish LOT flight bound for Warsaw.
The guy even knew the date. The SB's prison source was doing a good job, Paszkowski noted to himself. He also must have been told by the same prison informant how unhappy Paszkowski and Staszek had been about the long sentences imposed by the German court. In Austria, both read recently in the newspapers, the courts had given suspended sentences to Polish hijackers, who in fact used violence.
