Parade 19 April 2018

Technically, this should read ‘parts of the parade’. The first waves with helicopters passed along the runway nicely enough. The fighters however came across straight overhead. The larger aircraft were seen lining up along the coast, heading south to Tel Aviv. Some smaller aircraft seen at Tel Aviv remained out of sight at Haifa. Below is wat could be seen at Haifa, on base or from a place just outside the gate (larger aircraft). Also, the order over Tel Aviv may have been slightly different.
