Just googled....October, 2008 and September, 2008. Just two other Israeli Air Force-related crashes.
The one in September was on the 11th. Surprised that wasn't called out...
NO, I think the few number of Israeli Air Force crashes is because of, as you said, the excellent training...AND it is a very small Air Force too.
The USAF is highly regarded, as are many others. If you look at RATES of accidents/per hours flown, or mission OPS, that's a better guage.
Hate to say this, but he was only 21. ALL pilots usually go through a period of most danger, when they get beyond basics, and a little
cocky...sometimes they outstrip their actual experience levels.
