wikipedia notes: Operation Magic Carpet is a widely-known nickname for Operation On Wings of Eagles, an operation that brought 49,000 Yemenite Jews to the new state of Israel. British and American transport planes made some 380 flights from Aden, in a secret operation that was not made public until several months after it was over. At some point, the operation was also called Operation Messiah's Coming.
