Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has delivered a modified B767-200ER multimission tanker transport (MMTT) aircraft to the Colombian Air Force (CAF).

The MMTT aircraft, which also includes air refuelling capabilities, has successfully completed flight tests, including in-flight refuelling of Kfir/C10 fighter aircraft.

The aircraft was converted by Bedek Aviation Group to a MMTT configuration for the Colombian Government and the CAF.

The Colombian ambassador to Israel Isaac Gilinsky said receiving the tanker is a great gift to the Colombian Air Force.

“It is a project of national significance and is of crucial importance to Colombia’s security and defence,” he said.
