Ramon & Eilat-Ramon – Monday 6th May 2019 (John Tomlinson)

After an excellent day, a ramp tour of Ben Gurion in the morning and then the Israeli Air Force Museum at Hatzerim in the afternoon, it was now going to be a long ride to the South and our next destination.

However on the way we were going past the base at Ramon, so we had a look for some of the preserved aircraft.

Noted at 1826hrs

They were both near to each other, however we could not get too close as the road was closed.
