Opening in theaters on March 9th is 7 Days In Entebbe – a Focus Features film based on the actual events of Operation Thunderbolt – a hijacking/hostage crisis and subsequent counter-terror rescue mission in 1976. Lead by two German and two Palestinian terrorists, the hijacking took place on an Air France flight from Israel bound for Paris, which instead landed in Entebbe, Uganda. Israeli commandos killed seven hijackers and three hostages died during the rescue.
Not having seen the film, nor having an in-depth knowledge of the real events, I don’t know if 7 Days In Entebbe will be historically accurate. However, with all the players laid out for the film – German Nationals, IDF Special Forces, Mossad, and the Ugandan military, the film has the potential to be rich in a variety of firearms.
Lets take a look at some scenes from the trailer.
These look like Polish Milled Receiver AK47s (title image):
