News Brief

The arrival of four American-built F-16 planes last Thursday brought to a final end the embargo on delivery of 14 F-16s and three F-15s. All 14 planes of the F-16 type and three F-15s, delivery of which had been held up by the Reagan Administration for weeks following Israel’s raid on the Iraqi nuclear reactor and the bombing of terrorist headquarters in Beirut, have now arrived in Israel. The aircraft are now being painted with Israel Air Force insignia and incorporated with the Air Force.
