Global SITREP E4-16: F-35I 'Adir' Arrives in Israel

IAF F-35I  'Adir' at its unveiling in Texas
12 December 2016: Ar 0700 EST/1400 IST today Israel will receive its first first two of the fifty  F-35I 'Adir' ('Mighty') stealth fighter aircraft purchased from the United States of America. As I write the initial paragraph for this SITREP these aircraft are approximately 45 minutes from being 'wheels down' at Nevatim Air Base in southern Israel. Israel the first country outside of the U.S. to bring these truly awesome 5th Generation aircraft into operational service. Count this as a definitive blessing. Watch the F-35I video here.

There are several countries around the world who will eventually be flying the F-35A variant, but in all the world there is only one F-35I and Israel has it. Israel will be the first country in the world outside of the U.S. to have an operational F-35I 'Adir' squadron, and that will occur sometime late next year when the next nine aircraft are delivered to Israel. 

This bad bird guarantees Israel Air Force's domination of Mid-East skies 

13 December 2016: The uniqueness of the F-35I is mostly found in its avionics package and other technological goodies built by Israel's Elbit Systems and IAI.  And that uniqueness will expand well beyond anything the Adir's designers imagined. The Israeli pilots who will fly this incredible aircraft will in the coming months develop operational procedures that other countries can only dream about. This aircraft will ensure that Israel will not only dominate the skies of the Middle East for the foreseeable future, but will enable it to take on combat missions it has thus far not been fully capable of executing as would be desirable with the F-16I Sufa and F-15I Ra'am. The F-35I 'Adir' will execute these missions at less cost and with less support which can be allocated to other fronts needing attention.

To quote the IAF Chief-of-Staff Brigadier General Tal Kalman, "The future is here." Yes sir, it is, and then some.

As we all know, Israel's F-35I Adir's landed last evening at nevatim Air Base in the Negev. They were flown in by American pilots. This morning Israeli pilots took to the skies over Israel in these aircraft. As stated in the comments section of this SITREP, Israel's pilots who will form the IAFs F-35I combat squadrons have been training on cutting-edge flight simulators for some time now. Today they simply hopped into the cockpit and flew victory laps in the skies over Israel. Watch the video above, courtesy of the IDF Spokesperson Office.

Fog and poor visibility delayed the F-35I Adir's departure from Italy on the final leg of their flight to Nevatim AB.

They will now touch down on Israeli soil at 10:30 EDT/15:30 IST.

I'm so happy to hear we, the U.S. has come to help Israel in this way!! What I
don't understand is the timing. Why would zero allow our country to aid his
enemy. We know he hates Israel.

Sean Osborne said...

This deal wasn't within Zero's power to deny, control or interfere with in any manner whatsoever; it began during the Bush Administration, and (I am convinced) was shepherded by God's will.

As for timing... this perfectly fits into the 2017-18 time frame of prophetic events I believe will come to fulfillment.

Rhonda said...

I worded my question wrong. I do understand the timing of our country's gift
is prophetic, I just meant it was difficult to understand that Israel
is receiving this wonderful gift while zero is still in office. I'm very happy
to hear he had no control over it. All the more poetic, don't you think:)
Thanks for explaining things.

WOW again and I am not usually up this late but this news has my heart happy and ready for bed! The new Lady, the topic of this posting has to be landing in my beloved Israel and now I have new purpose for prayer!


Sean Osborne said...


Then you're enjoying a double portion of happy because two of these 'Adir's' landed in Israel today.

Here's the big secret:

Publicly Israel says these birds will be combat ready within a year.

However, it is known that Israel's pilots have been training for several years for operations with the 'Adir' on a state-of-the-art virtual reality trainer.

That means these ladies need only be appropriately armed and they'd be battle ready this morning; same goes for their sisters still in the US.

I also wonder if Trump will have a sort of modern day 'lend lease' for these aircraft with respect to Israel and her needs vis a vis Iran.

Sean Osborne said...

Has the Ayatollah, his clerics and their generals taken notice of the F-35I Adir delivery? (Breaking Israel News has the video of Adir #901 arriving last evening at Nevatim AB.)

At the arrival ceremony for Adir #901 PM Netanyahu stated that any country thinking of attacking Israel will be attacked.

The F-35I Adir can overcome any air defense system on the planet - including Russia's S-300 and S-400 systems.

Hey Sean, it has occurred to some that God has placed trump in office because he will provide Israel the support and technology to bring the complete fulfillment of Isaiah 17 and -psalm 83. Perhaps that's a stretch but it's an interesting thought

Sean Osborne said...


You get the proverbial brass ring; you have identified the bottom-line reason why this SITREP was written.

I believe the F-35I Adir will be as key of a military warfighting instrument in the literal fulfillment of Isaiah 17/Jeremiah 49:23-27, Psalm 83, Joshua 13, and Jeremiah 49:34-39 as were the Roman siege earth-works a warfighting instrument in the literal fulfillment of Jesus' prophecy of Matthew 24:1-2 during May of 70 AD.

The topography of Jerusalem made the Roman siege earth-works as absolutely essential as does the modern anti-air capabilities in Syria, Lebanon and Iran make the F-35I absolutely essential for these future literal fulfillments.

Gold ribbons to both of you and also, with the recent report of the super-sub from Russia armed with their nukes capable of massive destruction, so they say, there is yet to come secrets of unheard of destruction elements. So we better know we are in Christ Jesus and as soon as I get calmed down just a tad, we need to seriously get about ABBA'S business! I am aware that Satan's agents are feverously working to bring about evil BUT GREATER IS HE WHO IS IN YOU/ME than he that is in the world! That pretty well takes care of the rabble rousers!


GG5/again, I say, SHALOM

Pretty awesome Fighter Jet, Sean.

At least the sale of these jets does provide for American Jobs put Israel clearly in lead to defend or attack. May God have mercy on their souls who Israel attacks.

Sean Osborne said...

The Iranian Ayatollah today threatened Israel with extinction while playing host to Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader in Tehran.

Iran's president today said the only option left for Sunni and Shi'a Islam is for a great jihad (holy war) to liberate Jerusalem; that all other other efforts are futile.

We know how this will end.

Kenneth Moore said...

I'd think playing into the end times prophecy.

“Among other consequences of the war would be the destruction of the city-states on the southern shore of the Persian Gulf because they lack popular support,” Dehghan added, referring to small Gulf states with close ties to the West, such as the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Qatar.
With only weeks to go until America’s current commander in chief steps down, the world can but watch and wait to see which actions—if any—Trump implements regarding Iran when the new president takes office on 20 January 2017.
