Thousands at Haifa funeral of pilot killed in military chopper crash

Thousands of people take part in the funeral of one of the pilots killed in yesterday’s military chopper crash, Maj. Chen Fogel.

The funeral is held in Haifa’s military cemetery.

Fogel’s father Yaron said earlier that his son joined the air force “because of his love for the country.” He said Chen wanted “to enlist to the top [job]” and had intended to serve in an elite infantry unit but decided to try out for pilot after getting an offer.
