Above and Beyond: The Birth of the Israeli Air Force
A celebration of chutzpah!
In 1948, a group of World War II pilots volunteered to fight for Israel in the War of Independence. As members of "Machal" volunteers from abroad this ragtag band of brothers not only turned the tide of the war, preventing the possible annihilation of Israel at the very moment of its birth, they also laid the groundwork for the Israeli Air Force. It features interviews with scholars, statesmen and pilots. Produced by Nancy Spielberg,
Above and Beyond is the story of these remarkable men.
