Plot Summary
In this dramatization, members of the Revolutionary Cells and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine hijack an Air France flight, and the airplane makes its way to a Ugandan airport. The terrorists release all but the Israeli passengers, intending to use them to bargain with Israel for the release of prisoners. Refusing to negotiate, Israeli officials -- among them Yitzhak Rabin (Peter Finch) and Brig. Gen. Dan Shomron (Charles Bronson) -- devise a plan to rescue the hostages.
