ATHENS, Greece — A panel of senior Greek government and military officials has approved a $1.45 billion deal to upgrade more than half of the country's American-made F-16 fighter planes. Officials say the deal approved by the Greek cabinet on Saturday will give 85 of Greece's fleet of F-16s capabilities similar to the much more advanced F-35 fighters minus stealth technology.
