TEL AVIV (Reuters) - Israeli defence electronics firm Elbit Systems (ESLT.TA) said its UK joint venture with Kellog, Brown and Root (KBR) won a contract from the UK Defence Ministry’s military flight training programme worth about 500 million pounds over 18 years.

Elbit Systems and U.S.-based KBR each hold 50 percent in the joint venture, Affinity Flying Services Ltd, and will evenly support and benefit from the programme, Elbit (ESLT.O) said on Tuesday.
