    21/11/14 - Tel Aviv - Habonim - Rishon Le Zion - Sde Dov

    The last main spotting day of the Aeroprints tour. My thanks to Mark, our guides Avi, Zvi and "Mossad Man", driver Zach, all the airport/airfield staff who kindly provided us access and were indulgent to our behaviour, and, of course, everyone on the trip for making it so enjoyable.
