- TRIVIA -

Operation Thunderbolt was released in December 1988. The game's plot is loosely based on a real life incident known as 'Operation Entebbe' which consisted of the hijacking of Air France Flight 139 which took place in June 27, 1976 and ended on July 4, 1976. One year later, Menahem Golam directed a movie based on the incident called 'Mivtsa Yonatan'. Coincidentally the English title of the film is called 'Operation Thunderbolt'.

- UPDATES -

Two different versions were released in US; the new one features some changed texts (during introduction).
