He said, “the film tells accurately about the details of enhancement and modernization which the Egyptian air force witnessed during the period when President Mubarak was the air force commander. It also tells how Mubarak managed to make the air force the key to what Egypt describes as the October victory over Israel. The film also describes how the Israeli forces were paralyzed completely after the Egyptian air force had launched its airstrikes against Israel during the October 1973 war - Albawaba.com
