4Aviation was given the opportunity by the Israel Defense Force Media Desk to send a group of aviation photographers to the press day of the major exercise Blue Flag 2019 at Ovda AB. All on this international group were provided with an accreditation from a magazine or online media.
We departed for Tel-Aviv Ben Gurion on Saturday 9 November and we arrived in the early afternoon. We collected the cars and started our travel to Beer Sheva where we arrived at our hotel approximately one hour later.
On Sunday 10 November we visited the Israeli Air Force Museum at Hatzerim. They have a large collection of aircraft and most of the day was used to inspect and photograph the aircraft in the collection. Since the wind direction was not favourable we decided not to visit the only accessible approach of Hatzerim Air Base, and decided to make our way to Eilat. After a 3 hour drive we arrived in Eilat where we enjoyed a good dinner and spent the night.
