Preparations for Israel's 64th Independence Day get underway
Preparations are underway for Israel's 64 Independence Day, which falls on 26 April. Yom Ha'atzmaut centers around the declaration of the establishment of the State of Israel by The Jewish Leadership led by future Prime Minister, David Ben-Gurion.
The Israeli military aerobatic team consists of four demonstration pilots plus one navigator, who flies in the back seat of the leader's aircraft. The team performs just a few times each year, primarily at the graduation ceremonies of the IAF Flight Academy marking the end of each flight course. The team also performs on the nation’s Independence Day and at Israel Air Force day airshows.
