On the eighth of May 1972, four hijackers from the Palestinian organization “Black September” took control of Belgian Sabena Flight 571 from Brussels to Tel Aviv.

The hijacking marked the beginning of thirty nerve-wracking hours, bringing together the fascinating human, military and political drama inside and outside of the plane. SABENA HIJACKING – My Version is the story of the events woven together with genuine archival material and exclusive interviews with three revered Israeli political leaders who were in charge of the rescue effort at the time, as well as the only surviving hijackers.
