Antoine, Karpada is the singular of karpadot—Hebrew for "toad" and the nickname was obvious based on the green colors.
BTW, the 119 was my Squadron from 1972-1974.

By the way, there's a similar pics of 333 in Airdoc's book about tayeset 119.

It seems that most of the aircraft you're showing us comes from 119.


Hi Antoine,

Yes, I am aware that some of my photos appear in the book about Tayesset 119. At the time I was visiting Tel Nof airbase and as it happens there was alot of training going on those days. The Karpada painted Kurnass was still very much in the inventory. Not a single F-15 or F-16 in those days....

About these pics though, I first offered to share my photos with my friend Yoav Efrati who was doing a book on "Israeli Air Force Camouflage and Markings" and he asked me what I had and i told him "Karpadot" which was for him very exciting because there were no color photos of SEA scheme with 119 Red fin flash. Apparently, some time later Shlomo Aloni thought that since they were already appearing in some books and internet sites that he was free to put them in his book. As far as I was concerned he could have my permission to use the photos, although he made no attempt to contact me. Another book which I contributed some photos to was "On the Edge" "A history of the Israel Air Force and it's aircraft since 1947" by Mr. Bill Norton and published by Midland.

Look, the whole copyright of photos thing with regard to my images is not an issue as far as I am concerned. What does piss me off is when I see my photos with some other "pissant's" watermark on it !!! Now that is something else entirely.......

Anyway...It's all history now. If I had not taken those photos then, you would never seen them almost 40 years later.

Here are some in-flight "action" shots (taken from the ground) in early 1972, before the Yom Kippur war. These Kurnass aircraft are apparently from the 69sq. You can see how much these pilots loved to fly at low level..........
