This is very rare photo! Circling over "Sde Boker" Airstrip in the Negev Area (Southern of Israel) in AIM Aviation Ce172N 4X-CHA. This airstrip is used only by Helicopters and U.L´s. G.A.planes are not authorized to land there. The airstrip is very close to the famous Ben-Gurion "Green Hut" and the Ben-Gurion Grave Estate.

Back in the day in the early days of the state (1950's and 60's)... when David Ben Gurion lived in the desert this airstrip saw the the most use when it used to shuttle Ben Gurion other parts of Israel using various small aircraft (e.g. piper cubs, Pilatus PC-6 Porter, etc.)
