The Israeli Air Force has returned to service five of 11 F-35I stealth jets grounded following a crash of a similar model of the plane during a test flight in the United States in December.

The IAF says the other six jets are still undergoing tests to rule out the issue that apparently caused the F-35B to crash on a runway at a US Navy base in Texas.
