  1. In June 1976, following an aircraft hijacking & holding of hostages at Entebbe Airport, Uganda, Israel undertook a daring military airbourne raid using C-130 Hercules aircraft to rescue the hostages. Come see how they did it & how successful it was. Hope you enjoy. Cheers.

Come with me in the Ukraine Air Force-liveried McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Super Hornet to see some of these sights & learn their history.
