Egypt F-16 crashes during training drill, kills crew

Another F-16 crash?

Is there a problem with the model of airframe?

Or just pilot error?


Egypt's military says an F-16 crashed during a training drill in an undisclosed location in the country, killing its entire crew.

Thursday's statement did not specify the number of dead or provide further details.

There are over 4500 F-16s flying worldwide. It's an extremely difficult aircraft to fly as well.

The aircraft crashed near Fayed Air Base after a technical problem.

They were coming in to land at the time the accident occurred according to reports. They hit just short of the end of the runway.
