On Tuesday (February 21st) the C-46 Commando Airplane finally arrived to the Atlit Detention Camp after a long journey from Alaska. The airplane will serve as an interactive exhibit describing the clandestine immigration by air. The C-46 airplane is the same model as the plane used to bring over 150 Jews from Iraq in 1947. This brave mission was known as "Operation Michaelberg" and was led by Shlomo Hillel, today the President of the Society for Preservation of Israel Heritage Sites.
