The shooting of the film Entebbe, about a vliegtuigkaping had Friday to be shut down because of a real hijacking at the airport of Malta.

The Libyan aircraft of Afriqiyah Airway was Friday afternoon hijacked and had to flee to Malta. At that time, were at the airport pictures rotated for Entebbe, based on a vliegtuigkaping who forty years ago took place in Uganda. That, reports the BBC.

In contrast to that hijacking, ended the hijacking of the Libyan aircraft without bloodshed. The hijackers surrendered and were detained. All 118 people on board were able to secure the unit to leave.

According to the mayor, could the Maltese armed forces cope well with the situation. “We have five hijackings had here, and ironically they were exactly filming for Entebbe today.”
