There are a ton of reports on El Al Israel Airlines and the IAF doing some sort of air display over the Tel Aviv area in salute of Israel's 61 years of independence from the British mandate. Does anyone know if there are pictures around? I heard that it was really impressive and involved LY using four aircraft: a Boeing 747-400 (Tel-Aviv), Boeing 777-200 (Sderot), Boeing 767-300 (HaEmek?) and a Boeing 737-???. How were they able to just send out four aircraft during a regular flight schedule. There must not have been passengers on board and all traffic to TLV and SDE must have been suspended. If anyone has any more details, that would be great.

Here is a link to an Israeli website. I guess you should not have problems to see the JPG icon next to a message with a picture. Just click that icon and you should see the photo. You have there photos from the airport (before departure), photos from the coast line and photos from the aircraft themselves.
