Israel AF 60th anniversary

Where? around Israel
When? May 2008

Israel saw in 2008 the 60th anniversary festivities of the state's proclamation on May, 14th 1948. To celebrate this, events were held all over the country, and the Air Force was obviously participating as well. Besides the Open Doors at several airbases a massive fly-by constisting of a total 67 aircraft all over the small country and cumulating at the beach of Tel Aviv on May, 8th, was the public highlight of the celebrations.

Arriving some days before the actual festivities I visited Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion International Airport, which will result in another report later on this site, and had another look at the Air Force Museum in Hatzerim.
Nothing really new could be discovered there: some aircraft underwent restoration or were newly painted in the meantime, and one more F-4E Phantom II was being added to the already extensive collection. The sky above was also quiet that day, only some Tzukit and even less A-4s of the nearby airbase were circling around. I therefore had enough time to have a close look at the interesting exhibits without hurrying around in order to see everything everywhere.

F-AIR Colombia Airshow, Rionegro, Medellin
Where? Medellin / Rionegro Airport, Colombia
When? 09-12/07/2015

The bi-annual F-AIR COLOMBIA (Feria Aeronautica Internacional) airshow at Rionegro airport, which serves as the international hub for Medellin, is a great chance to catch up with Colombia’s current military aviation hardware. Though the city of Medellin might not be the first thing coming to ones mind when thinking about aviation photography, the Show itself provided a great chance to catch a lot of the hardware of the Fuerza Aérea Colombiana (FAC).

Finally, after months of preparation and strong support by the Messerschmitt Stiftung and the EADS Heritage Flight I am sitting in the photo-ship on that hot August day 2003 and can listen to the radio traffic of the Messerschmitt Bf-108 D-ESBH that is lining up on the runway in front of us and which is the main target of that photoflight.
