Soaring high above the day-to-day hustle and bustle, IAF pilots see the beauty of the Land of Israel -- and the country's small, strategically vulnerable dimensions -- as no one else can.

A few weeks or months from now, dozens of IAF pilots could be making their way toward Iranian skies, on a mission to save Israel and the rest of the world from a nuclear armed radical Islamist dictatorship. But last week, they were conducting a flyby over Israel for Yom HaAtzmaut. The IDF Spokesman's Unit provided us with these great photos of our land from above.
