Would you risk everything - your future, your citizenship, even your life - to help a brother in need? 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. As members of Machal - "volunteers from abroad" - this ragtag band of brothers not only turned the tide of the war; they also embarked on personal journeys of discovery and renewed Jewish pride. ABOVE AND BEYOND is their story.

This review is actually for "Above and Beyond-2006"
We enjoyed a vacation to Newfoundland and visited Gander and it's airport. This movie tells the story of the airport and it's historical importance in WW11. It was thoroughly entertaining and tells a beautiful story of the people involved as well as the role they played in assisting Britain in the war. It features Mark Critch from 22 Minutes and Allan Hawco from The Republic Of Doyle.
