What an irony!
The crew of the film were evacuated

The aircraft is parked near the Lufthansa Technik Maintenance Hangars. In that Park they are shooting a movie about the hijacking at Entebbe, Uganda which happened in 1976 in the days of the beast Idi Amin - there is a film set including replica control tower and terminal. That was one heck of a daring operation to liberate a hijacked plane by clandestine israeli commandos who managed to land a hercules in secrecy in a hostile country, raid the aircraft and liberate nearly all hostages with the loss of only 1 commando (benjamin netanyahu's brother) and 4 hostages.
Thank god that today's seems to be moving towards a peaceful solution with many hostages being released, let's pray it goes on until of the poor souls are free.
