It was June 1976 that an Air France plane carrying 244 passengers and a crew of 12 on a flight from Athens to Paris was hijacked by terrorists who forced the captain to alter course and eventually land at Uganda's Entebbe Airport. With the tacit approval of president Idi Amin, the passengers were held hostage and threatened with death if the Israeli government didn't comply with their captor's demand to release 53 Palestinian so-called freedom fighters held in Israeli prisons.
