    Background: Egypt celebrated the 26th anniversary of the Air Force November 2.

    Soviet-built planes flew over the capital. Others were exhibited on the ground.

    General Mohammed Sedky Mahmoud, President Nasser's personal representative, placed flowers on the tomb of the unknown warrior. He was accompanied by high Air Force officers.

    Air Force men were on parade in the capital.

    The anniversary coincided with two others aimed at commemorating the " Arab struggle against Israel". One observed the British Government's 1917 Balfour Declaration, promising Jews a national home in Palestine. The other observed the Israeli attack on the Gaza sector 1956.
