Hatzerim – Sunday 5th May 2019 (Grant Robinson)

A short visit here and not a great start to the tour as the museum was closed. This might have had something to do with the rockets going overhead that had been fired from Gaza Strip! We  saw some F-15’s going off to strike back but only managed to identify one on return. Fortunately this skirmish was to be short lived and we would return here……

On display at the museum entrance:
(WA905), Gloster Meteor F.8, Israeli Air Force Museum, United Kingdom (unknown)
39, North American P-51K Mustang, On Display, Israeli (111-36126)

On approach to base:
217, McDonnell Douglas F-15I Ra’am, 69 Sqn, Israeli Air Force (1292/I006)
159, Aermacchi M.346i, 102 Sqn, Israeli Air Force (D0028)

Best regards,

Grant Robinson
