Israel Lifts Grounding Order on F-15I, F-16I Fighters

The Israel Air Force IAF has resumed F-15I and F-16I training flights after initial findings from a still-ongoing investigation appear to have ruled out the need for a fleet fix to the Pratt & Whitney engines powering the nation’s frontline fighter force.
An Israel Defense Forces (IDF) officer described the July 7 crash of the F100-PW-229-powered F-16I as “an extreme freak occurrence” that did not warrant continued grounding of the service’s F-16I and F-15I fighters.
