Combat helicopters from the Air Force completed a four-day joint exercise with the Hellenic Air Force in Greece this week.

Eight Israeli combat helicopters - four Yanshuf (Blackhwawks) and four Apaches took part in the exercise, which included navigating around high mountains.

Security sources said the Hellenic Air Force officials hosted their Israeli counterparts warmly and courteously.

The exercise was scheduled to take place a year ago, but was delayed to the beginning of June due to bad weather. The exercise was delayed again in June because of the Gaza flotilla incident.
