This Month in History: April
April in the IAF is notable for integration of aircraft: From the Avia S-199, the IAF's first fighter aircraft, to the Sikorsky S-55. Each aircraft holds a unique story of difficulties and challenges
The "Adir" (F-35I) manufactured by "Lockheed Martin", is a fifth generation multirole stealth fighter jet. The first pair has been positioned in the first "Adir" Squadron, the "Golden Eagle" Squadron from Nevatim AFB.
Nevatim Airbase is located in the south of Israel, and is mostly used for tactical heavy transport planes. In April 2008 a new runway, the longest in the Middle East, was opened on the base. Nevatim AFB is also the home of the "Adir" (F-35I).
