The Israel Government has cancelled an order for ten Meteor jet fighters from the Dutch Air Force, it was revealed here today.

The last minute cancellation came after the Meteors had been refitted to meet Israeli specifications. The reason for Israel’s action was that royalties charged by the British manufacturer of the planes were “too high.”
