Role: Maritime Patrol
A fixed wing Flight was established by the IDF Navy in 1977 to provide
naval co-operation missions. The initial equipment comprised one ex-Air
Force IAI 1123 Westwind 1, together with two additional new examples.
During 1978-1981 the three aircraft were converted to IAI 1124N SeaScan
standard with a prominent radar nose, bubble windows, stores pylons and an
extensive sensor fit. The aircraft are crewed and maintained by the Air
Force but operated under Navy control.
The Naval Flight SeaScans have now been repainted in a grey colour scheme, including 4X-JYO/031 and 4X-JYJ (4X-JYF/003 was only loaned).
