Re: INIOCHOS 2021 exercise

Both 69 with F-15I and 107 (F-16I) are attending this year and whilst "officially" they arrive next Sunday, there was a - probably totally unfounded - rumour that they might have "popped over" (for tea & cakes?) Sunday-Tuesday this week.

Re: 2021 tomorrow: Boeing 777 freighter in Israeli Air Force Independence Day Flypast...

Not forgetting the usual Israel Air Force flypast, this year split into (at least) three to cover the entire country so all the local spotters can get a good look. One stream will be mainly fast jets, one mainly transports and one for helicopters. There is an interactive link at https://www.matas-ia...

Re: Tel Nof AFB (LLEK) 2021

Unusual visitor here this morning (but not to these shores) was C-130H 94-7315 (from the 731st AS as per the Scramble database). It used the call sign "Chrome24' signifying it arrived from further South-East.

Re: List of numbers F-16 BAF

BAF501 (FA-89/44F109) has just flown past my window at 14,900'. Unfortunately due heavy scattered cloud I could not tell if it was a solo (and if I should find out that FA-126 was it's unseen buddy.... :censored: :censored: )
The NAF43 (T-235) was presumably doing the tanking.
