Friends from Israel,

happy Israel Independence Day (27th April 2004). Understand IAF will usually display her frontline fighters at the IAF Museum near Hatzerim Air Force Base on this day. Just wondering anyone of you on this board will be visiting the Museum this coming Tuesday? It will be nice if you can share some pictures of the Vipers with us here. :wink: I am also wondering, by any chance, the F-16I will be making her appearance on this day?

cheers, :)

I can guess the usual. Some F-15's, F-16's, Apaches and maybe Cobras and F-4's.

Pumpkin, I'm sorry to let you down.
Though the Ramat-David AFB, Tel-Nof AFB, The "Techniyon" in Haifa and the IAF Museum will be open for public, no cameras are allowed :(

you're most welcome IAF-16,

thanks for the info. I guess you will probably be visiting but as DeepSpace has mentioned, no camera is allowed. Hence, I guess you will not be able to share with us, photo of the Vipers.

Have fun,
Desmond
