January 21st 1981; The 52 American hostages held at the US embassy in Tehran for more than 14 months arrived in West Germany on their way home to the United States. The former diplomats and embassy staff stepped from the plane onto the tarmac at Wiesbaden airport looking tired but elated after their 4,000-mile (6,437km) flight from Iran. Some waved to the crowd of well-wishers who had gathered, others gave the V-for-victory sign. Iran finally agreed to release the hostages after the US said it would release assets frozen in American and other banks, including the Bank of England, since the embassy was seized.
