black_spit  pic: it is an actual pic of Ezer's Weizman black spitfire. only two AF pilots have a license to fly that old beast. but like aork hores it does his show once-twice a year: one tme at the independance day and the second time in the Air Force day

cast_lead_pilot_rush: its a genuine pic of a pilots begin to stram the equipment and to run toward planes during the Cast-Lead operation. very unique and rare pic

at the second reply you can see KFIR-still live and kickin', some pics of a ground crew work

lineup.jpg pic its an actual lineup of 4 Skyhawks. in IAF planes always take off in pairs, threes or fourths.

phantom_ber_sheva.jpg pic it actual F4 stationed at the entrance to Beer sheva not far from my house, stands next to the new building of the IAF technical college, where i have learnt

skyhawk_712.jpg pic: I HAPPY TO PRESENT YOU THE FIRST PROTOTYPE OF THE AVIONICS UPGRADE THAT WAS LEADED BY ME. guys i cant tell you how much i'm happy/shocked to find here this plane. with every plane down the squadron i have almost emotional connection, but with this one particular one. i've dismounted it almost fully and then builded up again, changing all the avionics on the way. i tryly can say this is my masterpiece of the whole service in IAF

No worries, i just hoped you knew straight off from memory. I look it up myself later tonight. Hate it when i know and see the aircrat infront of me but its name just turns blank.  :P

That KFIR is actually a pleasant surprise and your F16´s just look mean.  :)

PS, i posted 2 images of a IAF female pilot, maybe you know her?  ;)
