Yeah, he was a mess at that time by all accounts. I seriously doubt the 'middle aged' description given by a stewardess at the time would have matched him. You might think it's the kind of thing a crazy aviator like Hughes would do, but this is a guy who set air speed records, built an aircraft company, built the Spruce Goose and an airline. The skyjacking would be a low-grade antic for a rich eccentric like him.
