Nesher Kfir Lavi!!!

Taking advantage of my time here in Israel-Palestine to write some about the confluence of Israeli airpower and technology policy:

The dominance of the IAF has come about through effective training, the weakness of its foes, and a flexible approach to design and procurement. Over the years, the Israelis have tried various strategies for filling their air force with fighters, including buying from France, buying from the United States and building the planes themselves. They seem to have settled on a combination of the last two, with great effect.
