UAE - Israel | A Historic Flight

Hey IFC! Today I and @airbus7447skyhawk attended @CaptainZac’s event where we flew from Abu Dhabi to Tel Aviv recreating the historic flight last Monday between the two countries. It marked a moment in history as the two countries signed a treaty allowing flights to operate between the two of them. As of today, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain have also allowed this flight to operate over their country’s air spaces as well.
So here’s info about the route:

Server: Expert
Airline/Aircraft: El Al B737-800
Flight Time: 3h 33m

Sitting at the gate as a B747-8 takes off into the early morning.
