The Independent Guide To The






Lebanese Air Force



Force Aérienne Libanaise




By Vatche Mitilian








Welcome to Vatche Mitilian's Independent Guide To The Lebanese Air Force.

The following pages are dedicated to all the brave men and women who have served and still do in the air force from the very day of its formation to our present day.  You will get acquainted to the History through its formation to its current status, with emphasis on combat operations and other incidents.  You can also find many photos, some published for the first time on this web site.

I would like to thank my late friend Dr Kassem Jaafar (RIP), true Lebanese Air Force fan and supporter, the military analyst and historian, for his most valuable input and many historical data, and Joao Paulo Moralez for his insight and support with the History pages and more. 

I plan to update all the sections of the site regularly so please come back often and do not forget to contact me with your thoughts, additions, contributions and feedback.
