I remember I saw once in the sky an EC-3 Hawkeye. It was in 1977 or 1978. I immediately recognized the plane for having seen it in flight magazines, so I understood IAF had it in its inventory. But at the time it was completely undisclosed that a IAF had or was going to have EC-3s...
Funny this picture... It's the first time I see a picture of an unmarked bird like in this photo. And I never heard about an Agriculture Ministry 747. It could have been a flight test of a 747 that was modernized by IAI and for that reason it was unmarked. What made you think it belonged to the Agriculture Ministry?
The only reason I noticed that bird is because it was flying on the deck and didn't start gaining altitude until it hit the coastline.
The building in the foreground is the US Embassy in Tel Aviv.
The Hawkeyes you saw are officially retired. They are kept in operational storage and offered for sale on the SIBAT website as well as F-4s, A-4s...
You can see the gear coming down the in second photo so it's pretty easy to guess where she is headed.
Remember Mabhouh, the Hamas terrorist that was allegedly assassinated by the Mossad in Dubai?
His deputy was assassinated today in his flat in Damascus. He was responsible for the transfer of Iranian weapons to Gaza.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worl...ark-rooms.htmlSyrian prisoners were left to die in military hospital 'dark rooms', while others were drugged to stop them speaking with international observers, a defecting military doctor has told The Daily Telegraph.
In his first media interview since he fled his position as head of the intensive care unit in an Aleppo military hospital, the doctor gave a chilling eyewitness account of secret wards where he said patients were tortured or sent to their death."Important arrested patients, those that had more information to reveal, had to be healed. Those that were useless to them were sent to a secret ward that we nicknamed "the dark room" where they were tortured, eliminated or left to die."
The doctor, who for security reasons can only be identified as Ahmed, worked in military hospitals in Aleppo, Deraa and the suburbs of Damascus each of which had these wards.
The patients were kept in "dire" conditions with their hands and feet handcuffed to the beds and their eyes blindfolded in windowless wards, often in a basement.
Deprived of antibiotics and painkillers, and often left to lie in their own faeces, many of the patients sported gaping infected wounds.
Found it. This is the insignia of the "Hawkeye Squadron". Here it is in another variation (9th rank, 1st from the right): http://www.iaf.org.il/36-he/IAF.aspx

is it possible to track what airplane it is on a radar? like when a plane intrudes your airspace the radar automatically tells you that it is a F-4 or F-16?
