First F-35 Stealth Fighters on Way to Israel

The Lockheed Martin F-35 is the latest stealth fighter jet, and the next generation of air superiority. Now, The Jerusalem Post's Noam Amir reports, the first two F-35 fighters are en route to Israel, where they will arrive on Monday, to help keep the IDF at the forefront of the region's military powers:

Two US-made F-35 stealth fighter jets on Thursday began their voyage en route to Israel where they will be acquired by the Jewish state after their expected landing next week at the Nevatim Air Force base near Beersheeba.

The two planes are set to request clearance to land this coming Monday at  2:30 p.m., when American pilots will transfer the "keys" to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and to IAF Maj.-Gen. Amir Eshel.
