Israeli and American pilots took to the skies on Sunday afternoon, August 24th to display their support for Israel during Operation Protective Edge.
Flying 15 airplanes proclaiming “We Love Israel” and pro-Israel messages or Israeli flags painted under each wing, these pilots from all over the United States volunteered their time to express their sentiments.
The “Fly By” project is the brainchild of Long Island flight instructors Robert Keleti and Edi Tchernomordik, The Jewish Voice reported.
El Al pilots as well as pilots from as far as Indiana, Salt Lake City and other cities and towns across the United States joined as well.
The ‘We Love Israel’ flight began in Farmingdale, Long Island and flew over Jones Beach, Long Beach, Coney Island, the entire Jersey Shore and Manhattan.
