The Israeli Air Force has received two additional F-35I Adir stealth fighters at the Nevatim ABF on Wednesday.

The two fighter jets bring the current squadron to a total of nine. Israel will ultimately receive 50 of the cutting-edge aircraft.

Lockheed Martin recently delivered F-35 Full Mission Simulators (FMS) to its clients in America’s allies (Israel, Italy, Japan and Norway), the first-ever deliveries to international F-35 operators.

The simulators are critical components of the pilot training capability at F-35 operating bases, where they will facilitate pilot qualification training, continuation training and mission rehearsal training.
