The Egyptian air force performed a number of aerial displays on Friday to mark the country’s celebration of its victory in the 1973 Arab-Israeli war, known in Egypt as the 6 October war.
There were displays in 23 governorates, Al-Ahram Arabic website reported, as part of the participation of the Egyptian armed forces in the celebration of the victory.
The displays included a number of different aircraft, and the Silver Stars aerobatic team.
The 1973 war, which took place from 6 October to 25 October and eventually led to Israeli forces withdrawing from the Sinai peninsula, is marked in Egypt on 6 October each year.
