Based on a true military operation by Israeli commandos. An Air France flight is hijacked by the P.F.L.P. The plane has about one hundred Jewish passengers. The plane is grounded in Uganda. Israelis would not negotiate. This movie then shows how less than five hundred soldiers actually flew so far and rescued the passengers in one of the most successful military operations in history. The only casualty for Israeli soldiers was Lieutenant Colonel Yonatan “Yonni” Netanyahu.

User Reviews: Two made for television movies came out within a year of each other about this incident. Both were good films but this one seems a tad better due to the higher caliber of actors hired. The direction is also better as are the costumes and props used. However don’t pass up the other "Victory at Entebbe."
