Independence Day air show


In 2020 Israelis observed Independence Day in lockdown, but this year the celebrations are back in full force!

Last year, due to the coronavirus, Israelis observed Independence Day with family-only celebrations at home, settling for videos of the air force’s annual fly-by that only flew over hospitals as a tribute to health workers.

This year, however, thanks to Israel’s mega-successful vaccination program, Independence Day celebrations are coming back and the traditional flyover will reach more towns and cities than usual as a tribute to the Jewish state’s resilience.

We can’t wait!
