As in past years, the Israel Air Force has graciously invited a group from Nefesh B'Nefesh to attend the IAF Flight Academy Graduation (Wings Ceremony- Misdar Knafayim).
Former Oleh and IAF aircrew Lt. Colonel (Reserve) Danny Grossman has facilitated a limited amount of tickets for NBN Olim who may choose between two airshows that take place on Tuesday June 23rd and Thursday June 25th . Each show is truly a thrilling and memorable experience with the newest planes in the air force flying overhead, including performances by the IAF precision flight team (our version of the Thunderbirds or Blue Angels), and an exciting aerobatic performance by latest model F-16 made especially for the Israeli Air Force (the F-16i). The show also includes a Spitfire that flew in the 1948 War of Independence and precision marching drills performed by the cadet pilots.
Because the show is closed to the general public and by invitation only, registration with NBN is required and each attendee is required to have a ticket, which will be distributed by NBN.
In order to attend you must join us using our organized buses from Jerusalem or Tel Aviv.
Attendance is restricted to Olim with Teudat Zehut numbers.
Due to great demand, please do not request tickets if you have previously attended as guests of NBN. Teudat Zehut numbers for all attendees must be submitted.
Subsidized cost for round trip transportation: 40 NIS. Lone Soldiers are free. Please bring your own snacks, drinks & hats.
