1. This is an Action Request. See paragraphs 2-4.

2. The Department's Office of Defense Trade Controls
Compliance (PM/DTCC) requests Embassy,s assistance in
conducting a post-shipment check on license 050081481 for the
export of F-5 aircraft spare component parts to Spain.
Embassy is requested to complete this Blue Lantern check

will affect pending and future licenses involving parties to
this license.

3. Reason for request: Lack of documentation from the Spanish
Air Force (SAF) and general concern over possible diversion
of F-5 spare parts to proscribed countries.

4. ACTION Madrid: Embassy is requested to make inquiries with
appropriate host government officials to determine if the SAF
has received the F-5 aircraft spare component parts from Aero
Precision Industries and that the articles are being used for
the purpose stated on the license. Export data indicates
that items worth $621 were shipped from the United States on
March 4, 2008. An additional three shipments were made from
the U.S. on May 20, 2008 in the amounts of $15,835, $15,535
and $15,155. Due to lack of documentation from the end user,
Post is requested to exercise its contacts within the SAF to
verify receipt of this order. (It may be useful to reference
