Honduras-born American aircraft pirate, convicted of hijacking Eastern Airlines Flight 175 from Allentown, Pennsylvania to Miami, Florida on 5 May 1972.

At around 4 AM on 6 May 1972 Hahneman parachuted from the plane over his native Honduras after extorting $303,000 from Eastern Airlines. Evading a manhunt by the FBI and Honduran police and with a $25,000 bounty on his head, Hahneman went on the run for 28 days before finally surrendering to the US Embassy in Tegucigalpa. He was sentenced to life imprisonment for aircraft hijacking, kidnapping and extortion, serving 12 years.

Frederick Hahneman died on 17 December 1991 at age 69 in Costa Mesa, California. Speculation still surrounds Hahneman's motives for the crime.
