Not much else is know at this time. The name of the pilot that lost his life hasn't been released till the family has been notified.



An American Air Force pilot was killed on November 30 when his F-16 Fighting Falcon crashed shortly after takeoff from a base in the Middle East, according to a report from from US Central Command.

The incident was not combat-related and did not occur in Iraq or Syria, according to the CENTCOM notice. But the US has several Middle Eastern bases supporting aerial efforts against ISIS elsewhere in the region.

It sounds like he had an emergency and was coming back at the time of the crash.

Is this what you were talking about... Aging air frames?
Regardless ...
Prayers to the Pilot and The Families involved.
