Yesterday, we had a special visit to the Hatzor army base. During the
presentation, an alarm went off, and our presenter, a commander of the
Scorpion F-16 fighter pilot, bolted out of the room. He's on "5-
minute alert", which means he has to be able to jump into a plane
within 5 minutes at at point. Fortunately everything was ok (a
foreign aircraft failed to make contact at the appropriate distance).
Later, our buses pulled up beside the runway, as 6 F-16s took off...
the sound was pretty loud. I couldn't take photos on the base, but
above is the photo of a decomissioned plane, at the edge of the base.
