Aaron "Red" Finkel, who volunteered to become one of Israel's first fighter pilots during the War of Independence, died on Feb. 23 in Woodland Hills at the age of 86.

Born in Brooklyn, Finkel served as a U.S. Air Force captain in the China-Burma Theater during World War II.

When the newly born State of Israel desperately needed fighter planes and pilots in 1948, Finkel ferried a single-seater plane from Czechoslovakia to Israel and there joined the fabled 101 Squadron, the genesis of the Israeli air force. Many of his former comrades eulogized Finkel during services at the Eden Memorial Park Chapel on Feb. 28.

A real estate broker in civilian life, Finkel is survived by Claire, his wife of 25 years; son, Joshua; stepsons, Stephen and Andrew Shapiro; five grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.

Contributions in his memory may be sent to the United Jewish Communities (www.ujc.org) or the Jewish Agency for Israel (www.jewishagency.org). -- Tom Tugend, Contributing Editor
