In preparation for Independence Day, members of the air force's Ofek 324 unit has developed a system for Israeli citizens to track the fly-over display that takes place every year on Independence Day.
The fly-overs across the country will take place on during the later part of Thursday morning as part of the 71st Independence Day celebrations.
The special system for the real-time display of the fly-over will be accesible on cell phones through a website, which will display an interactive map that includes updates at any given moment during the display.
The site allows tracking of the aircraft's location on the interactive map at any given time during the flight, and information about each of the participating aircraft, such as the type of jet, an image, dimensions, the engine and its performance.
The site will also provide information for each of the open air force bases on Independence Day: opening hours, air and ground performances, exhibitions and real-time transit times.
