Israelis would not negotiate. The movie then shows how less than 500 soldiers actually flew so far and rescued the passengers in one of the most successful Military operations in history.

When the pilot of the Air France plane is told to enter as new course heading 181 (which means almost directly southwards), the plane turns right. However, if flying from Athens to Paris, the plane would have a heading of approx. 315 (northwest). So, the shortest way to reach heading 181, the plane should turn left. See more »
Two made for television movies came out within a year of each other about this incident. Both were good films but this one seems a tad better due to the higher caliber of actors hired. The direction is also better as are the costumes and props used. However don't pass up the other "Victory at Entebbe."
