F-15I, Israeli AF
One of the highlights of the European airshow scene of 2001 was the appearance of Israeli F-15I Ra'ams at the show of Waddington. A participation in the static would already have been very nice, but it was even better: the Israelis gave a stunning flying display. Let's hope for more in the future!
