Skip to comments.Israel's Air Force Through The Lens Of An Amazing Military Photographer (Nir Ben Yosef)
Posted on 05/21/2014 10:35:07 AM PDT by golux
Nir is one of the leading aviation photographers in Israel and has been documenting the IAF's remarkable aircraft and operations for well over a decade. He has flown on-board F-16s, CH-53s, Bell Jet Rangers, C-130s, Fouga jet trainers and many more aircraft in his pursuit to capture the essence of this elite fighting force.
Currently, he is part of the IAF Aerobatic Team's photo documentary project and was honored last year as being a guest speaker at the International Society of Aviation Photographers's convention in Seattle.
Nir's creative use of lighting, contrast and perspective in relation to aerospace subjects has brought him international acclaim for his work, including being published in many international aviation magazines, and rightfully so, his pictures are amazing!
I was a little surprised to see the cockpit photos. Then I noticed a lot of it was blurred out.
The comments are amazing. American media, colleges are training the kids to hate Israel. It is an explosion of vitriol: Jews this, Jewish controlled media that...
I guess it’s all fun and games until your daughter is circumcised and your grandson’s name is Mohammad.
Or you have a POTUS named Barack Hussein or something.
LOL just kidding. Impossible.
It was a bit surprising to see the IAF still flying the A-4, in my opinion one of the greatest aircraft ever built thanks to Mr. Ed Heinemann. Great fun to fly, also.
That is a pretty good phrase, on the surface it sounds so light and casual, even humorous, that is a nice little bomb to drop when appropriate, it's the kind of thing that people think about later.
What kind of missile launcher is that on the ship? It sure has a lot of tubes.
I could be wrong but they look like chaff launch tubes to me. Appears to be a Sa’ar missle boat or similar. They carry harpoons, but those launchers are different as they are typically larger quad launchers.
