Jet fighters overhead! 3 videos

.
The Independence Day flyover!
Today Israel Air Force plane flew for two hours, all across the country.
I climbed the high hill in Meitar's center to get the best view and be closest to the aircraft.
.

These jets demonstrated  mid-air refueling.


A bird and a child's kite got into this clip of some fighter jets.


I think these are our new F-35 Stealth fighters.
They were shown to the public for the first time today.
The Times of Israel writes this:
Israel is the first country outside the United States to receive the state-of-the-art F-35, which is manufactured by Lockheed Martin. In total, the country is planning to purchase 50 of the fifth-generation stealth aircraft, known in Israel as the “Adir,” or “mighty one,” and has thus far received five of them.
You can see clear photos of them in that article.
.
And now tonight, we end our happy 69th Independence Day and start our 70th year as a State, thanks, in great part, to the planes and pilots we saw today.

Excellent videos! I've seen flyovers here as part of our Remembrance Day and Canada Day ceremonies, but have never caught them in a shot or video.
