ABOVE AND BEYOND: The Untold True Story (Documentary)

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In 1948, just three years after the liberation of Nazi death camps, a group of Jewish American pilots answered a call for help. In secret and at great personal risk, they smuggled planes out of the U.S., trained behind the Iron Curtain in Czechoslovakia, and flew for Israel in its War of Independence. The first major feature-length documentary about the foreign airmen in the ’48 War, ABOVE AND BEYOND brings together new interviews with the pilots, as well as stunning aerial footage, to present a fascinating, little-known tale filled with heart, heroism, and high-flying chutzpah. Filmed in the U.S., Israel, and the United Kingdom, ABOVE AND BEYOND is produced by Nancy Spielberg.
