Each year, the Colombian air force celebrates its anniversary in Bogota on this date. This year, an interesting number of aircraft was put up for static display around 09.00AM,
 
whilst other aircraft could be noticed on the flight lines. During the official part, including a medal parade led by the Colombian President, two formations made three passes each,
 
consisting of six Kfirs and six T-37s. After the official parts, the guests were allowed to visit and admire the static aircraft.
 
Interestingly, SR-560 (a modified Ce560 with APG-66 radar) FAC5761 was the aircraft that aided in the interception of two Russian Tu-160s by FAC Kfirs crossing
 
Colombian airspace just one week before, on their way from Venezuela to Nicaragua. The aircraft has nine kill markings for narco-traffickers.
