Polish fighter jets arrived in Israel this week for joint training with the Israel Air Force in the Negev.

The Polish dispatched a number of F-16 fighter jets which have been holding maneuvers alongside IAF F-16 and F-15s. The maneuvers are based in the Uvda Air Force Base near Eilat.

“We learn from one another, and it helps us learn from the Poles, how they fly and their doctrines,” a senior IAF officer said Wednesday.

Gen. Broni Lech Majewski, commander of the Polish Air Force, arrived in Israel on Monday to oversee the drill.

This is the first time that the two countries’ air forces are holding joint maneuvers. Israeli F-15s flew in Poland in 2003 when a trio of aircraft flew over Auschwitz.
