Yom Haatzmaut Fly Over Air Show 2024

This year, against the backdrop of the Gaza war and the number of hostages still being held in captivity, the 2024 Yom Haatzmaut events will understandably look a little different. The traditional Air Force flyover will not be taking place.

Every Yom Haatzmaut, the Israeli Air Force arranges a special air show and fly-over that passes over much of the country. The show features a range of aircraft from the IAF fleet including acrobatic planes, and lasts around 45 minutes. The aircraft pass over most major towns and cities in the country. A series of flyovers head from Beer Sheva to Jerusalem, through the Jordan Valley, over the major towns and cities of the Galilee, and then back down the Mediterranean Coast, passing Tel Aviv and passing over the cities of the Negev. Other fly-overs cover the southern Negev and center of the country.

The show can be seen from: Beer Sheva, Yeruham, Dimona, Arad, Kiryat Gat, Jerusalem, Beit She’an, Afula, Nazareth, Tiberias, Katzrin, Safed, Carmiel, Nahariya, Haifa, Caesarea, Netanya, Tel Aviv & Ashdod.

There are also displays of combat aircraft over Eilat, Arava and Mitzpe Ramon.
