Hereafter the F-15I Ra'am did lighten the sky during its solo display routine with the nearly continuous use of the afterburner and the merely never ending use of flares. The presentation finally finished precisely with the splitting up of the Tzukit display team above the Israeli flag at the last tone of the national anthem.

To conclude this report I would still like to present some photos of the static display:
Verdict: Though the event is aimed at the graduation of the young IDF/AF pilots and the access thus very restricted, your author is very grateful to the IDF spokesman for this rare possibility to capture these aircraft in the sky, and it was also a unique experience to feel the pride and standing of this air arm when looking at the spectator's reactions during the demonstrations.
!!! The graduation ceremony is no real airshow and without public access. It is only accessible via prior arrangements !!!
