On May 8, 1972, the Palestinian group Black September seized control of Sabena Flight 971 shortly after takeoff from Vienna en route to Tel Aviv. Israeli Special Forces promptly launched a covert operation to rescue the passengers and retake the plane. Benjamin Netanyahu, Ehud Barak, and Shimon Peres were active participants in this daring raid. This fast-paced docu-drama provides a moment-by-moment reenactment of those nerve-wracking hours.
