France and Russia are too big and wil continuously try to dominate, while also keeping secrets to themselves. The Netherlands does need less heavy multirole aircraft, and more light planes to intercept intercontinental rockets. The JSF leaves dutch engineers without work and specks American shareholders. Innovation by the JSF is limited since the pilot cannot stand more g's. Together with the Swedes and Belgium lots of electronics, weaponry and aviation-technology are available. Also for later construction of commercial planes. Do visit the museum at Le Bourget and see that almost anything can fly. Therefore it won't be difficult to build one's "own" plane, since, motor, wings, etc. etc. can be bought readily in diverse foreign countries. In Holland a new airport might be realized on a plate in the Eems estuarium which can house also new aviation industry. So cooperation between Israel and the three mentioned European countries will be interesting also in regard of regional development.
