    A military helicopter carrying six Israeli soldiers and one Romanian crashed Monday in mountainous terrain near Brasov, in central Romania.



    According to local sources, seven bodies had been recovered by rescue forces at the crash site by nighttime. The Israelis on board the chopper included four IDF pilots and two airborne mechanics.

    The aircraft had been taking part in a bilateral exercise dubbed "Blue Skies" when the accident happened. The manouevres had been scheduled to run from 18-29 July, but were immediately halted following the mishap. The CH-53's wreckage was located following a major search and rescue operation.

    Israel's air force began conducting mountain flying exercises in Romania in 2004. "Romanian geography includes challenging terrains unfamiliar to Israel," says the Israel defence forces. The air force was training there "to gain experience which may be needed in a future conflict", it adds.

    Israel's international training activities have more routinely been staged in Turkey over the last several years, but a recent freeze in relations between the countries resulted in the air force returning to Romania.

    Romania to accept first used F-16s from Portugal

    Six used Lockheed Martin F-16s will be delivered to the Romanian air force in Portugal on 28 September, the nation's defence minister announced on 27 September.

    The aircraft – which already bear the Romanian service's tricolour roundel – are the first batch from a 12-aircraft deal with the Portugese government signed in 2013.

    “Although I hesitate to use big words when talking about acquisitions,” defence minister Mihnea Motoc writes on his Facebook page, “I have to say that tomorrow will be a truly historic day for Romania and its army.”

    The 2013 deal includes training and support by Lockheed.

    Romania has been looking to modernise a Soviet-era fleet of Mikoyan MiG-21 multirole fighters for more than a decade. Its defence ministry considered offers based on the Saab Gripen and Dassault Rafale before opting for the NATO-standard F-16.

    Romania receives first F-16 jets to replace MiG-21's.

    Romania received its first six F-16 fighter jets from Portugal on Friday, as it works to bring its obsolete forces up to NATO standards and phases out its outdated communist-era MiG's.

    The F-16 Fighting Falcons are part of a batch of 12 units supplied by Portuguese Air Force to Romania, a staunch Washington ally and NATO member since 2004, and a participant in military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    "This acquisition of a first batch of high-performance multirole planes represents a major investment supporting an increase in our country's defense capability," Prime Minister Dacian Ciolos said at the 86th Air Base Lieutenant Aviator Gheorghe Mociornita, near the Danube river.

    Portugal will supply three more jets by the end of the year and the rest in 2017.
