120 Israeli Pilots in U.S. for Training Flights with Phantom Jets

The Air Force announced today that 120 Israeli pilots were in the United States for training in Phantom jets and will be trained at George Air Force Base near Victorville, Cal. The Israelis came here in mid-January after the U.S. agreed to sell 48 F-4 Phantoms to Israel. The pilots are now attending a language school at Lackland Air Force Base near San Antonio, Texas.
