Israel rescues Entebbe hostages

A cheering crowd at Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion Airport raises a member of the rescue squad which freed the hijacked hostages from Uganda earlier in the day. A plane with 248 passengers had been hijacked by Palestinian and German terrorists to Entebbe Airport on June 27, 1976. In the background is the C-130 transport plane which took part in the raid. The rescuer's face is obscured for security reasons. (July 4, 1976)
