Planes in Egypt - level 2
Military jets flew above Cairo and released black, red and white smoke. The colours represented the Egyptian flag which has these three colours in it.
The former unpopular president had been removed which was a reason for the people to celebrate. The new temporary leader was chosen and this air show actually happened minutes before he started to run the country.
The air force performance received a welcome from people as it represented their victory.
Interesting words: former (ex-), temporary (only for some time).
