Israeli AF Personnel Visit Lockheed F-35 Facility

Members of Israel’s Air Force have visited Lockheed Martin‘s facility in Fort Worth, TX, according to a Flightglobal article.

The visit was part of the service’s preparations for the initial batch of 20 F-35A joint strike fighters which are to receive Israeli-made electronic warfare systems.

Israel’s experts are now manufacturing the fifth-generation stealth fighter to accept the equipment which will be installed after the country’s F-35’s are supplied from 2017.

Israel’s sustained pressure resulted in an agreement that will enable the Air Force to improve capabilities of the F-35’s electronic warfare.

A $207 million contract was signed by the F-35 joint program office in August, to develop and demonstrate hardware and software for the aircraft.
