As a kid, I always liked to go and watch the Independence Day Airshows. Fighter jets, attack helicopters, and cargo planes fly past us, and then came the Fouga, with a unique scream, red-and-white color scheme, and smoking tails.
A few years passed, and I became a photographer and aviation enthusiast. And so it happened that me and my friends, Nir, Shay, and Yossi, adopted the IAF Aerobatic Team. Every June and December each of us took a day of unpaid leave and joined the team's exercise. We made sure we covered every possible angle of the acrobatic flight maneuvers. Each pilot got his own (unofficial) posed photo and a nice set of images - and we had some new photos to sell and publish.
