Landing of a plane at Ben Gurion Airport in the background of rocket interceptions from Gaza/Walla system!
It was an experience that Arkia flight passengers from Eilat will not forget: as the Ambair plane lowered to land at Ben Gurion Airport, they could watch from the window, in wonder and apprehension, the Iron Dome system intercepting a barrage of rockets launched by Hamas from Gaza.
A video taken by fans of airplane photography ("spotters") shows the plane lowering over Yehud to the runway at Ben Gurion Airport, while residents of Or Yehuda, Savyon and Kiryat Ono near the airport compound, along with other communities in the center and the lowlands, are staying in the safe room following a red alert alert.
Interception of the Iron Dome/Reuters system
Iron Dome's ability to accurately identify rocket targets allowed the pilots to complete the landing safely, without having to receive an order from the control tower to cut off contact and "go around," as had occurred in some previous launches of the war.
Ben Gurion Airport recorded a slight recovery in passenger volumes last week, and on Thursday 22,137 people passed through it, the highest number in the past month, on <> international incoming and outgoing flights.
