7 DAYS IN EN­TEBBE

In Flight Magazine - - REEL TIME -

In the sum­mer of 1976, an Air France jet trav­el­ling from Tel Aviv to Paris is taken over in midair by four hi­jack­ers; two Pales­tini­ans and two left-wing Ger­man rad­i­cals.When the plane is di­verted to an aban­doned ter­mi­nal at En­tebbe Air­port in Uganda, the ter­ri­fied pas­sen­gers be­come bar­gain­ing chips in a deadly po­lit­i­cal stand­off.As the like­li­hood of find­ing a diplo­matic solution fades, the Is­raeli gov­ern­ment sets in mo­tion an ex­tra­or­di­nary plan to free the pris­on­ers be­fore time runs out.
