Above and Beyond documents the story of the American, foreign and Israeli pilots who flew warplanes to help defend the new state of Israel during the 1948 Arab–Israeli War against Arab Armies that sought  to destroy the new country
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. 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.
This film is their story. The first major feature-length documentary about the foreign airmen in the ’48 War, it brings together new interviews as well as stunning aerial footage to present   a fascinating, little-known tale filled with heart, heroism and high-flying chutzpah.
