Israel Air Force on Yom Haatzmaut

What a great birthday. Israel is now 60 years old. A little grey hair and plump around the waist, but looking better than ever!

A marvelous thing happened today on our hike to Tel Azeka (more on that later). As we reached the top of the hill, we saw 5 IDF fighter jets soar above our heads with sky-sweeping fly bys. I imagine that this would not be a welcome site in Lebanon or Gaza, but here in the center of Israel, this is just awesome to see.

I am assuming they were participating in some ceremony for Israel’s Independence Day. At 60, our air force is still the giants of the sky.
