A First in Judea and Samaria on Independence Day

The traditional Independence Day flyover will pass today over dozens of locations around Israel. This year, for the first time, hundreds of thousands of Israelis living in Judea, Samaria, and the Jordan Valley will be able to view it from close to home.

Fighter planes, cargo planes, helicopters, training planes, aerobatic planes, and others, will participate in the flyover.

Among the new locations are the Gush Etzion area, including an aerobatic show over the Gush Etzion Junction and Efrat; and observation points from Neve Daniel, Migdal Oz, Alon Shvut, Elazar, Modi’in Illit, and Beitar Illit. Observation points include Har Adar, Naaleh, Beit Horon, Har Hatayasim, Almog, Beka’ot, and others.

Yesha Council CEO Yigal Dilmoni said: “We were happy to see that the flyover passes over new locations in our area. This year, hundreds of thousands more residents in Judea, Samaria, and the Jordan Valley will be able to watch the celebratory Air Force flyover and an aerobatic show pass above their heads.”

AFSI is beaming from this exciting development. Normally, our Spring Chizuk Mission trip would have been scheduled around this time and we would have been there to witness the flyover. While it saddens us that we’re not there this time…next time we will certainly add it to our itinerary!
