Landscape scenery en routeRamat David was even better during the visit, as a taxiing F-16C could be seen while arriving to the airfield, so the hopes for some flying activity were obviously very high. Additionally to the usual AS565 a Police helicopter was already in the air during the walk through the static display, but the sound of jet engines in the far distance promised some more flying, and beyond belief two F-16s taxied out to take-off and perform a small display for the visitors. The routine consisted mainly of fly-overs in formation along the runway used for the static display and around 15 or 20 minutes later the magic was over and both jets came back to land again.
But with no time for the landings I left early to get to Tel Aviv in time for the announced massive formation fly-by of Air Force aircraft and helicopters.
