French Technicians Replace Israelis in Uganda

Download PDF for this date

France and Uganda are about to sign an agreement providing for French military assistance to the Uganda air force. French advisors and technicians will service the eight “Fuga Magisters” which form the Ugandan air force. The planes were formerly serviced by Israeli experts who were expelled after Gen.Idi Amin decided to break off relations with the Jewish State. Official circles here denied that France would supply Uganda with armored vehicles.
