25th anniversary of Operation Solomon

On 24-25 May 1991, the IDF accomplished a miracle with its Operation Solomon covert mission to airlift 14,325 people and transport them 2,500 miles to a new life in Israel. It was Israel’s largest aerial expedition and included the world record number of passengers in a single plane.  (25 years ago I had the privilege to see some of those 35 planes arrive at Ben Gurion airport.)
