A few thousand feet below us, a green Mount Tabor, near Megiddo, glistened in the sun, as our Cherokee propeller plane banked left rather sharply, and dropped in altitude.

The reason for the maneuver was that our aircraft had just come under attack. A ground threat – an SA-6 surface-to-air missile battery – had been spotted at the foot of the mountain, and it fired a volley of missiles. The pilot took evasive action to dodge the incoming threats.
