|MASSIVE ETHIOPIAN AIRLIFT
||In 1991, 14,000 Ethiopian Jews were airlifted to Israel in a massive one-day airlift. The airlift took place in the midst of the Ethiopian Civil War. The Israeli airforce and the national carrier El Al sent the majority of their transports fleets to effect this massive immigration. One of the El Al planes set the world's record for the largest number of passegers aboard a commercial aircraft on this day.
This operation which was known as Operation Soloman brought to Israel nearly the entire remaining Ethiopian Jewish population.
