PHOTO ESSAY: Israeli Air Force Graduation and Air Show
In a just published photo essay, photographer and filmmaker Judah S. Harris shares with us an Israel Air Force Graduation and Air Show at the Hatzerim air force base in the Negev desert (located not far from the city of Beer Sheva).
This particular awarding-of-rank ceremony for Course 177 took place in December at the base which is home to the IAF Flight Academy, said to be the most intense program in the Israel Defense Forces, lasting three years and involving five stages of training and education, that leads to professional aviation proficiency as pilots, navigators, transportation pilots, helicopter pilots, and combat pilots.
The photo essay presents both the ceremony and a few of the air show moments of this event. A short video is embedded at the end of the presentation to help amplify the photographs.
