IAF Recieves 5 Blackhawks Today!

Sat Aug 10, 2002 4:13 am

Earlier today 5 New Blackhawks and man are they nice. They were recieved in a huge aircraft that I don't remember it's name and they were assembled in Israel and flown to their base in Hatzerim AFB in the South.

They are now called "Owls" by the Israeli Government.

It's great that the Israeli Airforce is doing great.

He said they were assembled in Israel, so they must be new L-based Blackhawks.

Well, that is a possiblity,

But assembly could just mean putting the blades back on after transport too.
