Israel had some good service out of those aircraft.

And if the numbers in that link are correct?
They are about half way through their technical service life with an average of only 4.000 from 8.000 hrs consumed?

Provided that all have been updated to a service life of ~8000hrs, I would expect that most of these have been spent given the 36 years of operations gone by. Israel haven't been holding back on the use of their fighting forces ;)
