Israel isnt like most countries. Anyone whose visited will tell you that it is really a land like no other, where anything can and has been accomplished. From technological inventions (including Microsoft and Google software, VOIP, Antivirus, Firewall etc) to health advancements (Teva is the world's largest generic drug maker), Israel makes inroads in all fields.
Last week, something else incredible happened. We could have a blog for every time Israel continues to amaze us - but this was very cool.
In celebration of Israeli Independence day, there was a special flyover along the Mediterranean Coastline. Usually in Israel and most other countries, something like this would be organized by the Air Force. But not in Israel this year.
El Al, who arent even officially Israel's National Airline, decided they would organize a flyover of their own. As the picture shows, they flew 4 Boeing jets along Israel's coastline from Ashkelon in the south, over Tel Aviv, to Netanya in the north.
