He participated in Yemen war and War of Attrition between Egypt and Israel. He was transferred to the heavy bombers Tu-16 as a captain at the end of 1968 then to the Tu-16K11-16 in 1971 (One of the firts captains to fly this type after entering service).

He carries 3 medals: Medal of military duty from president Gamal Abdul Nasser in the Yemen war, and two medals of military bravery from the first category one in 1973 war and one upon his mortayer in 1975. On 1 September 1975 his Tu-16K11-16 crashed over the Menya area. It has left engine fire and explosion in the bullets of the second navigator gun. Pilot W/C Mohamed Keraidy refused to bale out at the begining trying to rescue his crew specially after the intercom was disabled because of fire and kicking the floor with his feet trying to tell the first navigator to bale out. His copilot Fl.Lt. Adel El Fiky baled out safely and Keraidy did bale out several minutes after that after puting the bomber in a dive position into the river Nile in order to reduce the explosion. Keraidy was taken by a helicopter to the Maadi military hospital in Cairo and died in the ICU several hours later.
