Israel participating in aerial drill in Canada
For the first time, the Israel Air Force is participating in a six-week international combat exercise in Canada.
Israeli F-16 planes, a Boeing 707 airborne tanker and 150 air and ground crew personnel are taking part in the annual Maple Flag exercise held at Canadian air force base 4, Wing Cold Lake Air Weapons Range, in Alberta. The CLAWR covers 11,600 square kilometers and is the only tactical bombing range in Canada. The maneuvers will be completed at the end of this week. Maple Flag is the Canadian version of the United States' Red Flag exercise. It provides Canadian and allied aircrews with realistic training in a modern simulated air combat environment.
The air crews will practice attacking ground targets like missile launchers, armored combat vehicles, industrial plants, radar stations and airports.
