A group of senior Spanish Air Force officers, headed by the Air Force Chief of Staff Maj. Gen. Juan Lewis Aabad, recently came to Israel for a five day visit, the IDF said on Wednesday.

The delegation met with the IAF Chief of Staff Brig. Gen. Nimrod Sheffer, who took them on a helicopter tour of Israel. Afterwards, they visited the Nevatim and Tel Nof airbases.

“The objective of the visit is to develop relations and cooperation between the aerial forces," said 1st-Lt. Mika Lipshitz, head of the IAF Coordination and Operating Department, who accompanied the delegation on its trip. Such visits serve to advance discussions between senior officers on issues of local security in the Middle East, he added.

The Spanish officers completed their trip with a visit to the Yad Vashem Holocaust museum and a tour of the Israel Military Industries factory.
