“The first electronic air war occurred on June 9, 1982. A force of about 90 Israeli Air Force F-4Es and Kfirs, escorted by F-15 and F-16 fighters, came winging through the Bekaa Valley, Lebanon. With drones flying over Jordanian and Syrian defenses, a Boeing 707 electronically jamming enemy signals, and an E-2C airborne early warning aircraft vectoring Israeli fighters on to enemy aircraft, ten out of nineteen SAM (surface to air missile) sites were destroyed within ten minutes. A second wave of slightly fewer aircraft destroyed the remaining sites. Almost 100 Syrian MiG-21s and MiG-23s came up, blind without ground radar, and 22 of them were shot down. Not one Israeli aircraft was lost!”
