Three pairs of Israeli Ouragans that had been scrambled to attack Egyptian armored units encounter eight Egyptian MiG-15s on the Bir Gafgafa – Bir Hama route. The MiGs intercept the third Ouragan pair and hit its number two plane. Its pilot, Cpt. Avinoam Rosen, manages to return to base and land the plane. A malfunction in the lead plane forces it to land at Halutza.
