    ISRAELI WAR PLANES, INCLUDING NEW AMERICAN-BUILT SKYHAWK JET FIGHTER-BOMBERS; STAGED A SPECTACULAR AIR FORCE DAY DISPLAY TODAY. WATCHED BY TEN THOUSAND SPECTATORS - INCLUDING DEFENCE MINISTER MOSHE DAYAN AND HIGH-RANKING OFFICERS - THEY BOMBED AND STRAFED SELECTED TARGETS. THERE WAS ALSO A FLY-PAST OVER JERUSALEM AND OTHER CITIES, AND GROUND DISPLAYS INCLUDING CAPTURED ENEMY AIRCRAFT AND RUSSIAN-MADE MISSILES.

    ON THE EVE OF AIR FORCE DAY, THE COMMANDER OF THE ISRAELI AIR FORCE, GENERAL MORDECAI HOD, CLAIMED THAT ISRAEL COULD DESTROY ANY GROUND-TO-GROUND MISSILES WHICH EGYPT USED, AND THAT ISRAELI PILOTS COULD DEAL WITH EGYPT'S NEW RUSSIAN-MADE 23'S. HE ALSO PROMISED THAT THE ISRAELI AIR FORCE WOULD BE RE-EQUIPPED WITH IMPROVED FIGHTER BOMBERS.
