Avión Kfir se salió de la pista y terminó en una playa de Cartagena; no hubo víctimas ni heridos


La aeronave, de matrícula 3004 que intentó despegar del aeropuerto Rafael Núñez de Cartagena a las 4: 45 p.m. de hoy (lunes), no logró levantar vuelo.

El avión, que se incendió de inmediato, quedó semidestruido a un costado de la vía al mar, dejando bloqueada la vía Cartagena - Barranquilla, donde a esta hora hay un fuerte bloqueo.

El piloto, al parecer de nacionalidad israelí, según dijeron testigos, fue sacado de la aeronave en medio del fuego sin que sufriera ninguna herida.

"El avión nunca despegó y por eso no fue tan dramático el accidente. Se salió de la pista, atravesó la vía al mar y cayó prácticamente en la playa", dijo un testigo a EL TIEMPO.


El comandante de la policía metropolitana de Cartagena, coronel Carlos Mena, dijo que no hubo heridos ni víctimas fatales.

PICTURES: Colombia loses newly upgraded Kfir fighter in runway overshoot
By Craig Hoyle

Two Israeli test pilots escaped injury when the upgraded Colombian air force Kfir fighter they were flying ran off the runway in Cartagena on 20 July.

Believed to be from an initial batch of ex-Israeli air force Kfirs that have been modernised for Colombia by Israel Aerospace Industries, aircraft FAC-3004 suffered major damage after crossing a road and coming to rest against large rocks.

The two-seat trainer's starboard wing was severed in the incident, with its airframe also suffering further substantial damage in a resulting fire.

IAI last month delivered Colombia's first batch of modernised Kfirs, which have received new avionics and electronic warfare equipment and Elta Systems EL/M-2032 fire control radars.

The Israeli company says it will upgrade 12 Kfirs already in service with the Colombian air force under a contract worth more than $150 million, "and supply additional jets". Local media reports suggest the deal covers a total of 24 aircraft.

US-Colombia deal could fuel arms purchases
Aug 27, 2009 7:59 PM EST
BARILOCHE, Argentina - Venezuela's Hugo Chavez has raised the stakes for Friday's meeting of South American presidents by threatening to break relations with Colombia over plans to give U.S. troops a 10-year lease on its bases.

Chavez says the U.S. has loosed "winds of war" on the continent - a position few diplomats share following tours by U.S. and Colombian officials seeking to calm fears of neighboring nations.

Even so, the bases deal has created uncertainty about regional stability and provided yet another justification for nations to spend big on their militaries.

Venezuela has poured about $4 billion into Russian weapons to counter the threat Chavez sees from the billions in U.S. military aid to Colombia. Ecuador is buying 24 Brazilian warplanes and six Israeli drones to keep a closer watch on its borders. Bolivia has opened a $100 million line of credit with Russia to buy weapons.

These purchases were in the works even before details of the bases deal were revealed last month by The Associated Press - and defense spending around the region is up sharply, mostly in the name of routine modernization.

The 12 South American nations spent about $51 billion last year on their militaries - up 30 percent from 2007, according to the Center for a New Majority, a Buenos Aires research group.

That's low compared to the rest of the world - U.S. spending alone is well into the hundreds of billions - but a steep burden for democracies in a relatively peaceful area that is struggling with growing poverty and economic crisis.

"None of this is good. The last thing the region needs is an arms race," said Markus Schultze-Kraft, a Bogota-based analyst with the International Crisis Group, a conflict-resolution organization.

He said the leaders should avoid telling one another: "You are arming yourself, that is why we must continue arming ourselves."

The Latin American Security and Defense Network, a Buenos Aires research group, says that Ecuador tops South American nations in relative defense spending, with 10.7 percent of its national budget.

That's even more than the 9.3 percent spent by Colombia, which has been battling a leftist rebel movement for decades. Venezuela spent 5.2 percent of its much larger, oil-fueled budget on defense last year.

Colombia won't budge on the bases deal, Foreign Minister Jaime Bermudez says. "The negotiations have closed and only await the official signature." He said Colombia may even question other countries about their own deals and arms buildups.

President Alvaro Uribe is expected to make some reassurances to his fellow presidents at the Argentine winter resort of Bariloche. U.S. and Colombian officials have said the troops are there to fight drug traffickers and leftist rebels, and that the troops won't cross boundaries without permission.

But Latin American leaders and U.S. lawmakers who were not consulted about the pending deal want more explanations.

"Unfortunately this could lead to an escalation of an arms race in the region, and particularly with Venezuela, Ecuador and other countries compensating for what they perceive as an alteration of the balance of power," said Miguel Tinker Salas, a professor at Pomona College in Claremont, California.

Chavez - who has repeatedly denied supporting Colombia's FARC rebels - claims U.S. troops could use the bases to launch operations to unseat Latin American leaders like himself, and says Venezuela will buy Russian tanks to defend itself.

"You can establish 70,000 Yankee bases surrounding Venezuela, but you aren't going to beat the Bolivarian Revolution!" Chavez declared this week.

Moderate leftists also are suspicious of foreign militaries in Latin America. Memories are fresh of the U.S.-backed dictatorships that killed and tortured their own citizens. Chile's president, Michele Bachelet, is among the survivors.

The unresolved coup in Honduras - by a military with close U.S. ties and training - worries them as well.

Uribe's promises haven't eased these concerns, particularly since he sent his military more than a mile (kilometer) into Ecuadorean territory last year to kill a top rebel commander - and told Chavez and Correa that he'd do it again.

Correa said Colombia's argument that its deal with the U.S. is an internal matter doesn't stand, especially given his claimed right to stage pre-emptive strikes outside Colombia.

"What if later we put nuclear warheads in Ecuador, and declare them to be a matter of national sovereignty?" he told Peru's Radioprogramas while traveling to the summit. "It's absurd - these are things that endanger the whole region."

Various countries have proposed solutions. Correa would put the bases under UNASUR supervision. Brazil and others want to see Colombia's reassurances guaranteed in writing. Bolivia's Evo Morales would like a continent-wide vote on the Colombia-US deal.

But the deal is done, and Uribe isn't coming to the meeting to negotiate, his foreign minister Jaime Bermudez said.

Several diplomats lamented that President Barack Obama won't be there to make the U.S. case, saying the deal seems out of place with Obama's promise at the Summit of the Americas to usher in a new era of cooperation and good faith.

Brazil, meanwhile, recently bought French submarines and helicopters and is poised to spend $2 billion for fighter jets to protect its offshore oil and Amazon resources, which many Brazilians fear could be targeted by unnamed foreign powers.

Silva will work at the summit to "reduce tensions that tend to be magnified by the rhetoric and polarization," his spokesman Marcelo Baumbauch said, and he has asked Obama to meet with the South American presidents, perhaps during September's U.N. General Assembly, "to overcome this unhelpful Cold War mentality."

Several analysts complained the bases deal was developed in secret, feeding fears and leading other countries to justify other weapons deals.

"If the United States doesn't want to sell to us, there's China or Russia," Morales said while celebrating the Russian credit line this month. He complained of waiting in vain for U.S. approval to buy six light-attack planes and said any president who invites foreign troops onto his territory is a "traitor" to Latin America.

About 1,500 protesters shared that theme Thursday in downtown Bariloche, far from the heavily guarded Llao Llao hotel, where the presidents will be able to meet in luxurious isolation. The iconic setting is an ideal place for settling differences. Or, there could be more talk of war.

Pact signed to expand US use of Colombia bases
By FRANK BAJAK, Associated Press Writer Frank Bajak, Associated Press Writer – Fri Oct 30, 6:45 pm ET
BOGOTA – In a private, low-key ceremony, the U.S. ambassador and three Colombian ministers on Friday signed a pact giving American personnel expanded access to military bases in this drug-producing country, a deal that Venezuela's Hugo Chavez has called a threat to the region's security.

Foreign Minister Jaime Bermudez said the 10-year deal takes effect immediately and restricts U.S. military operations to Colombian territory — alluding to fears expressed by leftist leaders in the region that it would make Colombia a base for asserting U.S. power in South America.

Details of the pact, which aims to boost drug and counterinsurgency operations, were not immediately released. But Colombia said in a statement that it "respects the principles of equal sovereignty, territorial integrity and nonintervention in the internal affairs of other states."

The U.S. State Department said in a statement that the accord "does not signal, anticipate or authorize an increase in the presence of U.S. military or civilian personnel in Colombia."

Officials have said it would expand U.S. access to seven Colombian bases while maintaining at 1,400 the cap on military personnel and contractors specified by U.S. law. Bermudez said that with the pact Colombia was seeking to improve its communications and intelligence capabilities, for which U.S. cooperation has already been a boon.

U.S. counter-drug flights that previously operated out of Manta, Ecuador, will now be based at the Palanquero base in the central Magdalena valley and Navy port calls will be more frequent.

"We are not bringing U.S. soldiers to Colombia for combat," Bermudez told reporters. "We're not going to see an unusual number of U.S. military personnel, nor U.S. planes in excess. What we're going to see is what we've always seen."

The top U.S. Defense Department official for Latin America, Frank Mora, told The Associated Press in August there would be no "U.S. offensive capacity" such as fighter jets from any of the bases. U.S. construction is, however, planned at Palanquero to expand facilities.

The State Department noted that "U.S. personnel presence has been in a gradual decline" in Colombia, a trend it said it expected to continue. U.S. law specifies that no more than 800 U.S. military personnel and 600 civilian contractors may be in country at any one time. Currently, there are 230 U.S. service personnel and 400 contractors in Colombia, Bermudez said.

President Chavez, who survived a 2002 coup attempt that he claims was U.S.-backed, has said Washington could use the bases agreement to destabilize the region.

South America's main power broker, President Inacio Lula da Silva of Brazil, however, dropped his initial objections after senior U.S. officials and Colombia's conservative president, Alvaro Uribe, made separate visits to explain it.

Uribe also assured regional leaders at an August summit that U.S. military operations would be restricted to Colombian territory, where a half-century-old leftist insurgency persists as well as violence related to drug trafficking.

Critics of the accord say it sends the wrong signal to Colombia's neighbors, especially given that the Andean nation remains the world's No. 1 cocaine producer despite receiving more than $4 billion in U.S. military aid since 2000.

"At a time when we should be pursuing every kind of diplomatic avenue to reduce tensions, this appears to be a military decision that may increase tension," said George Withers of the liberal U.S. think tank Washington Office on Latin America.

Under the pact, U.S. military personnel will continue to enjoy diplomatic immunity, exempting them from local criminal prosecution. Some Colombians objected to that, citing a case of two U.S. servicemen accused in 2007 of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl. The two have since left the country.

Asked Friday about the case, the U.S. Embassy referred to a statement it issued in August saying there was currently "insufficient evidence to prosecute the two U.S. service members involved."

Increased U.S. military assistance has been key to the recent weakening of the country's main leftist rebel group. The U.S. military has offices at armed forces headquarters and advisers attached to army divisions.

Although there's no evidence of any direct correlation, the boost in aid and cooperation also has coincided with a sharp increase in extrajudicial killings by Colombia's military.

Colombia Orders 39 Armored Security Vehicles

Released on Tuesday, December 08, 2009



Textron Marine & Land Systems to Deliver 39 Armored Personnel Carriers to Colombia
New Orleans, LA - December 8, 2009 - Textron Marine & Land Systems, an operating unit of Textron Systems, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, has been selected by the Colombian Ministry of Defense to produce and deliver 39 Armored Personnel Carriers (APC) for the Colombian Army. The Colombian Army's initial requirement for armored wheeled vehicles with associated logistics support will be contracted through the U.S. Army Foreign Military Sales process. The total value of this procurement is $45.6 million.

Textron Marine & Land Systems' armored personnel carrier is one of several armored wheeled vehicle configurations that it designs and produces. Textron Marine & Land Systems has designed and produced more than 2,400 Armored Security Vehicles (ASV) and APC vehicles for the U.S. Army, Iraq and Bulgaria. The armored personnel carrier that will be delivered to Colombia is equipped with a cupola mounted weapons station configured with either a .50 caliber machine gun or MK-19 40mm grenade launcher.

"Our ASV and family of vehicles have an impressive track record around the world and are vital to U.S. and coalition forces in Iraq and Afghanistan," said Textron Marine & Land Systems Senior Vice President and General Manager Tom Walmsley. "These vehicles will serve our Colombian allies well in the preservation of Colombia's peace and security."

The ASV and APC have maintained exceptional operational readiness and combat availability rates over more than five years of combat operations. Textron Marine & Land Systems has achieved more than 51 consecutive months of on-time delivery to the U.S. Army on the ASV program.

The ASV and APC are 4X4 wheeled armored vehicles that offer significant crew protection through the employment of multiple layers of armor, defending against small arms fire, artillery projectile fragments, Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) and land mines. These vehicles possess superior mobility, agility, handling and ride quality through the utilization of a four-wheel independent suspension system.

The ASV and APC vehicles perform a wide variety of missions including scout, infantry personnel carrier, reconnaissance, command and control and recovery. U.S. Army ASV missions include operations with the Military Police, convoy protection, perimeter security, as well as Field Artillery Combat Observation and Lasing Teams (COLT) with the M-1200 ASV configuration.

La France négocie la vente de chars Leclerc avec la Colombie

La France négocie avec la Colombie la vente de quarante chars Leclerc d'occasion (1). Ces blindés sont actuellement entre les mains de l'armée de terre.

Des experts de la DGA se sont rendus à plusieurs reprises à Bogota pour finaliser la proposition française : la Colombie cherche à se doter d'un char de combat pour contre-carrer la décision de son voisin, le Venezuela d'Hugo Chavez, d'acquérir des T-90 russes. C'est la première fois que la Colombie s'équiperait d'un char aussi puissant.

Les 40 chars en question sont aujourd'hui stockés par l'armée de terre : il s'agit des tranches 4 et 5 de la série 1. Avant de les vendre à la Colombie, ils devront subir une grande visite et se voir apporter quelques modifications (climatisation radio, nouvelles chenilles, instruction en espagnol, etc).

Ces chars proviennent des surplus de l'armée de terre, qui a sérieusement réduit la voilure en matière de blindés. Faisons les comptes :406 Leclerc EMAT ont été livrés à l'armée de terre. Celle-ci ne souhaite plus en disposer (en parc) que de 254. Soit un surplus de 152 chars. Plus d'une trentaine sont à la casse : il s'agit des premières tranches qui ont connu de nombreux problèmes techniques. Une trentaine ont servis de stocks de pièce de rechange et sont aujourd'hui démontés. Dix autres doivent être transformés en véhicules de dépannage. Restent donc un peu plus de 70 Leclerc susceptibles d'être cédés sur le marché de l'occasion. D'autres experts parlent d'une "grosse cinquantaine".

Outre la Colombie, le Qatar pourrait être intéressé par des Leclerc d'occasion, lui qui doit remplacer son parc d'une trentaine d'AMX-30. Jusqu'à présent, le char Leclerc n'a été vendu, neuf, qu'aux seuls Emirats arabes unis.

Le Leclerc a été engagé dans deux opérations extérieures : le Kosovo et le Liban, où il est toujours présent. Depuis 2008, la France ne dispose plus que de quatre régiments à 52 chars, soit un point blindé lourd de 208 chars. C'est un minimum historique.

(1) Dévoilées fin décembre par le quotidien économique la Tribune, les discussions n'ont pas encore abouti contrairement à ce qu'affirme le Point d'hier.

Le char Leclerc pourrait être très efficace contre les chars russes du vénézuella, mais d'un point de vue tactique 40 MBT ne sont pas suffisants, en plus l'exploiation de ce char risque de couter trop cher, quand je vois ce que coute une petite poignée de Leclerc déploiés au sud liban... 50% du budget de fonctionneemnt des chars de l'armée de terre française Rolling Eyes

La marine colombienne agit aussi sur les fleuves

Il est toujours intéressant d’analyser les modes opératoires des marines étrangères, telle l’Armada colombienne, notamment en ce qui concerne la marine fluviale, domaine dans lequel la Marine nationale est absente. La Colombie étant en effet le premier producteur et exportateur de cocaïne dans le monde, la marine a mis en place des moyens adaptés pour lutter contre les narcotrafiquants sur les fleuves. Dans le cadre de leur projet de poste, les officiers élèves du poste 5 sont allés à la rencontre de COTECMAR, l’industriel qui fabrique les nouveaux bâtiments de la marine colombiennes. Les patrouilles sont constituées de deux types de bâtiments : - un bâtiment principal, le Nodriza, capable d’accueillir un groupe de 30 « marines » et un hélicoptère de reconnaissance, - de trois petits patrouilleurs, plus petits mais très rapides, capables d’intervenir rapidement.. Cette technique s’est révélée être particulièrement efficace dans son domaine d’emploi au point d’intéresser les Etats-Unis pour un éventuel déploiement en Irak.

Colombia to Establish Black Hawk Training Facility
The Colombian Ministry of Defence and Sikorsky have signed an agreement to establish a Black Hawk helicopter training facility.
The training facility at Melgar will include a full-motion S-70TM Black Hawk helicopter simulator to support pilot training for the Colombian armed services and Sikorsky military customers in Latin America.
The Colombian armed services include the National Army of Colombia, the Colombian National Armada, the Colombian Naval Infantry and the Colombian Air Force.
The facility will include a launch platform for development, maintenance, repair and overhaul services, spares, and a training centre for both fixed and rotary wing aircraft.
Sikorsky Aerospace Services president David Adler said the new training facility would further improve the operational readiness of the Colombian armed services and regional armed forces.
The Black Hawk is a four-bladed, twin-engined, medium-lift utility helicopter used by the Colombian Air Force to transport troops and supplies to difficult terrains and for counter-insurgency (COIN) operations.

Colombie: collision mortelle d'hélicos

Six gradés dont un général ont été tués et cinq autres militaires blessés hier dans la collision en l'air de deux hélicoptères de l'armée de l'air dans le centre de la Colombie, a annoncé l'armée.
L'accident impliquant un hélicoptère Bell 222 et un Huey (bien un Huey) s'est produit au moment où les deux appareils effectuaient des manoeuvres de décollage, non loin de la localité de Chaparral, dans le département de Tolima (centre), a précisé le commandement de l'armée dans un communiqué.
Un précédent bilan faisait état de cinq morts et six blessés, parmi lesquels le général Fernando Joya Duarte, commandement de la force interarmes déployée dans le sud de ce département où elle combat la guérilla des Farc (Forces armées révolutionnaires de Colombie, marxistes). Le général est mort à l'hôpital, a annoncé l'armée, sans indiquer les causes exactes de l'accident

Colombia takes delivery of first Airbus Military CN235-300 MPA

The Colombian Navy has today taken delivery of a CN235-300 MPA (Maritime Patrol Aircraft). The aircraft is equipped with the Airbus Military-developed Fully Integrated Tactical System (FITS) which presents data gathered by a comprehensive battery of sensors to the two tactical operators and two pilots in an intuitive and usable format.

The sensor suite includes a search radar, which can locate and track ships, and an automatic identification system. An infrared camera can capture images and the aircraft is equipped to make digital video recordings of the missions for playback after missions.

The CN235-300 MPA for Colombia is qualified to carry out military surveillance missions such as economic exclusion zone monitoring, fishery patrol, and maritime interdiction as well as civic duties including search and rescue.

This CN235-300 MPA is the third Airbus Military aircraft that the Colombian Navy has acquired and will join two CN235-200 MPAs already in operation. The Colombian Military Forces are thoroughly familiar with the capabilities of the Airbus Military light and medium family of aircraft. The Colombian Air Force already operates four C295s and three CN235s.

To date, Airbus Military, the world leader in light and medium tactical aircraft, has sold 202 CN235s to 31 different operators. Of those, 32 are the MPA version and others have been upgraded from a previous military transport configuration.


The CN235

Able to carry up to six tons of payload and a maximum cruise speed of 240 kt (450 km/h), the CN235 is able to take off from and land on short, semi-prepared runways with soft surfaces thanks to its Short Take Off and Landing (STOL) characteristics and the strong landing gear with tandem low-pressure tyre. Its excellent handling qualities, high manoeuvrability and fast engine (two General Electric GE CT7-9CE-3, 1750 shp) response allow safe critical operations at a very low altitude. Outstanding reliability and supportability result in high aircraft availability and the lowest life cycle cost (LCC) in its class.

Colombia – UH-60L BLACK HAWK Helicopters

WASHINGTON, August 5, 2010 – The Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress today of a possible Foreign Military Sale to Colombia of 9 UH-60L Black Hawk Helicopters and associated equipment, parts, training and logistical support for an estimated cost of $162 million.

The Government of Colombia has requested a possible sale of 9 UH-60L BLACK HAWK Helicopters (1 for Colombian Air Force, 4 for Colombian National Police, 4 for Colombian Army), 18 T700-GE-701D General Electric Engines, warranty, internal fuel tanks, spare and repair parts, tools and support equipment, publications and technical documentation, personnel training and training equipment, U.S. Government and contractor engineering, logistics, and technical support services, and other related elements of logistics support. The estimated cost is $162 million.

This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a friendly country, which has been and continues to be an important force for political stability and economic progress in South America.

Colombia intends to use these helicopters to modernize its armed forces. The Colombian Air Force intends to expand its existing medical evacuation architecture to expedite movement of injured personnel from combat zones. The Colombian National Police will expand its existing utility helicopter defense architecture and counter threats posed by narco-terrorist elements within Colombia. The purchase of UH-60L BLACK HAWK Helicopters will contribute to Colombia’s goal to update its capability while enhancing interoperability between Colombia, the U.S., and other allies.

Turkey and Israel's venture will provide tanks to Colombia


The Colombian government and army are studying a range of solutions jointly offered by Israel Military Industries (IMI) and Turkey's Aselsan to fulfil the country's requirement for a new main battle tank (MBT), sources in Bogotá have told Jane's .

The Israeli-Turkish offer includes a wide number of options - ranging from General Dynamics Land Systems M60 tanks rebuilt and upgraded to an IMI Sabra III standard and fitted with an Israeli-made 120 mm smoothbore gun to refurbished samples of the Merkava Mk 2 and Mk 3 MBT.

Aselsan offers fire control and communication systems for the MBTs and performs part of the refurbishment of the second-hand tanks at its workshops in Turkey.

Another offer of second-hand Leclerc MBTs - presented by France's defence procurement agency (Direction Générale de l'Armement - DGA) and Nexter - is less attractive because of its higher price but has not been discarded yet. According to the sources, other offers comprising surplus Krauss-Maffei Wegmann Leopard 2A4 and General Dynamics M1 Abrams MBTs, were also turned down because of price. An attempt to buy some of the lighter Leopard 1Vs from Chile failed to reach fruition.

Colombia wants to upgrade its armed forces in order to keep pace with neighbouring Venezuela's announced acquisition of around 90 T-72 tanks. The Colombian requirements include special considerations related to the soft savannah, semi-jungle ground and climate where the tanks are expected to operate.

The project, which aims to procure between 60 and 80 MBTs for the Colombian Army, has a budget amounting to USD250 million. A decision is expected to be made by the end of 2010 or early in 2011, with deliveries to start in 2012.

According to some local sources the Sabra III is the preferred option. An offset package will be requested with the eventual order.

Colombian Air Force's B767-200ER Air Refueling Aircraft Completes Flight Tests
Released on Sunday, September 05, 2010

Israel Aerospace Industries Completed Series of Successful Flight Tests of Colombian Air Force's Boeing 767 Air Refueling Aircraft

A series of successful flight tests aimed at opening the flight envelope have been completed for the pre-owned B767-200ER (Extended Range) aircraft, converted by Bedek Aviation Group of Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) to a Multi Mission Tanker Transport (MMTT) configuration for the Colombian government and the end user, the Colombian Air Force.

The converted aircraft is equipped with two Wing Air Refueling Pods (WARPs) of the ARP3 model, developed and manufactured by IAI.

During the first 3.5-hour flight test, the full envelope, including altitude, speed, and Mach number, was opened without any flutter or buffet problems. Additional in-flight refueling tests of a C10 Kfir fighter jet, also produced by IAI, were successfully completed.

The MMTT pilot reported an extremely smooth flight with no technical events.

The air refueling system functioned very well, and the first hook-ups and fuel transfers were the most exciting moments of the flight. IAI's test pilot team that flew the aircraft reported that the systems performed flawlessly. The pilot of the Kfir (the aircraft being refueled) appreciated the easy, stable hook-up in each of the two WARPs.

As previously reported, IAI was awarded a multi-year contract in 2007 worth more than $150 million to upgrade the Colombian Air Force's Kfir aircraft. In June of 2009, the first Kfir aircraft were redelivered to the Colombians, and have been in operational activity ever since.

The tanker conversion project, which lasted more than two years, was completed by IAI's technicians, flight test pilots, and engineers, all of whom contributed to the development and integration of the air refueling system into the B767. Their dedication and hard work culminated in the minutes during which the tanker and the Kfir met in the air and performed the hook-up, an "exciting and proud" moment for those involved in the project.

IAI's chief test pilot Ronen Shapira, who flew behind the B767-200ER in a G250 business jet aircraft, also confirmed the smooth flight: "The flights were successful, and the aircraft performed extremely well with the air refueling pods. The aircraft performance and overall stability of the aircraft and the drogues all displayed impressive results."

Eli Hattem, General Manager of IAI's Bedek Aviation Group, commented: "These successful flight tests are an important milestone in this conversion. We are pleased to report that everything is progressing smoothly and look forward to continuing to strengthen our ties with the Colombian government and its Air Force."

In the coming days, the B767-200MMTT will perform additional flights before its redelivery to the Colombian Air Force.

PICTURES: IAI tests Colombia's new 767 tanker
By Arie Egozi

Israel Aerospace Industries' Bedek unit has conducted a successful series of flight trials involving a modified Boeing 767 tanker for Colombia, and says a lucrative market exists for additional customers.

The secondhand 767-200ER has been converted to a new multi-mission tanker/transport (MMTT) configuration for the Colombian air force, with the work having included the installation of ARP3 wing air refuelling pods developed and manufactured by IAI.



Conducted in Israel, the recent trials were aimed at expanding the in-flight refuelling envelope of the 767. This included transferring fuel to an upgraded IAI Kfir C10 fighter awaiting delivery to Colombia under a 2007 contract worth more than $150 million.



The 767's new refuelling equipment performed "flawlessly", say company test pilots, while contact by the fighter is described as easy, with a "stable hook-up".

"The performance and overall stability of the aircraft and the drogues displayed impressive results," says IAI's chief test pilot Ronen Shapira, who also flew behind the modified airliner in a Gulfstream G250 business jet.

Capable of carrying a maximum fuel load of 72,500-90,700kg (160,000-200,000lb), one adapted 767 could support 13 Lockheed Martin F-16 fighters on a mission with a range of 1,000nm (1,850km), Bedek says.

The company sees an opportunity to convert a "meaningful number" of additional 767s for the MMTT mission, which could also include cargo and VIP transport tasks. "This is one of our growth engines in the coming years, with potential sales of $100 million a year," says general manager Eliezer Hattem.



Further business could lead to Bedek working with European companies in making aircraft conversions, with Hattem confirming that it has already held talks "with more than one potential partner". IAI has previously offered a 767-based tanker to the Polish air force in collaboration with local firm Bumar.
