US-born pilot who thwarted Egyptian attack in 1948 passes away

Lou Lenart, former US Marine who fought in WWII, led the IAF's first ever assault against an Egyptian force making its way to Latrun to join Jordanian troops; this attack helped save the newly-formed Israel.

American-born Lou Lenart, who led the Israel Air Force's first attack to push back a crucial Egyptian advance during Israel's War of Independence in 1948, passed away on Monday at the age of 94.



On May 29, 1948, Israel was facing defeat as a column of Egyptian tanks was making its way to central Israel to join forces with Jordanian troops in Latrun.

The newly-formed Air Force decided to recruit its entire fleet of fighter planes - four Messerschmitt planes - and sent them to attack the Egyptians. . . . [More]
