    On Sunday three F-35 "Adir" stealth fighter planes will land in Israel, the army said on Thursday. The three planes, which will take off tomorrow from their base in the United States, will join the two other planes which landed in Israel in December. The five F-35 (known by its Hebrew name “Adir” or “Mighty) jets will participate for the first time in the Air Force Flyover during Independence Day.

    Israel was the first country outside the United States to receive the F-35 in early December and is expecting to receive a total of 50, two full squadrons by 2022. Israel is set to receive six to seven per year, until the first batch of 33 jets is delivered. Once the jets arrive in Israel, they will not leave except for combat missions.
