On Sunday, the 2nd of December 2012, friends of Israel gathered on a small farm outside of Pretoria to show their solidarity and support for the state of Israel. In an event titled “Fly in” [for Israel], local Jewish, non-Jewish and Israeli aviators who adore the hobby of flying convened for a wonderful morning.
While the weather prohibited many from flying in with their private aircrafts, several still arrived in their own personal planes and helicopters, whereas others drove in to join this one of a kind event.
HE Ambassador Dov Segev-Steinberg, the guest of honour for the affair was welcomed with warm wishes of support for the state of Israel. Participants of the event enjoyed the morning over a delicious braai, Israeli food, Israeli music, opportunities to watch aerobatics and see the different aircrafts while meeting people with similar interests.
The fly in event is just one example of a group of people using their love and hobby, such as aviation to unite like-minded people in support of Israel.
