Above and Beyond: The Birth of Israel’s Air Force

“In 1948, a group of World War II pilots, mostly from America, 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.

ABOVE AND BEYOND is their story.”

The film is scheduled for completion in Spring 2014.
