Israel’s Air Force One has had its first test flight.

The Boeing 767-300ER airliner purchased from Qantas Airlines in 2016 took off from Ben-Gurion Airport after a $170 million renovation schedule.

Israel’s prime minister and president will use the plane on official trips abroad.

Israel Aerospace Industries provided “sophisticated technological systems” for secure communications and safety.

The plane’s left wheel malfunctioned last week leading to an emergency alert.
