The Reagan Administration formally notified Congress that it intends to sell 10 F-5E jet fighters and two F-5F jet trainers to Honduras for $75 million, the Pentagon said. The proposal to sell the planes was disclosed last fall, but the number and dollar amount were not announced. Honduras is to pay for the transaction with U.S. military aid funds. Officials said the planes will replace, not supplement, Honduras' existing fleet of jet fighters.

In a surprise move Thursday, a House subcommittee killed a Democratic move to block the Reagan Administration's planned sale of F-5E jet fighters to Honduras. Rep. Stephen J. Solarz (D-N.Y.) broke party ranks to join with Republicans on the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee on Western Hemisphere affairs and voted against a resolution of disapproval. The resulting 6-6 tie effectively puts an end to the matter in the House.
