Background: The Egyptian Air Force - now leading partner in the United Arab Republic Air Force - celebrated its 27th anniversary, November 2. Military air bases were thrown open to the public, who crowded round aircraft on view, examining them with great curiosity.
Guides were there to explain technical details about the aircraft, ranging from helicopters and seaplanes, to modern jets.
Air Force Unics paraded through Cairo's main streets, and here and there in the city other military aircraft had been placed on view.
