Egyptian Air Force F-16 fighter crashes over Sinai Peninsula

According to the information provided, the fighter, the type of which is not indicated, performed a training flight over the northern territories of the Sinai Peninsula. The cause of the crash is not indicated, the fighter pilot died.

This information was confirmed in the press service of the Ministry of Defense of Egypt. According to the official representative of the Egyptian armed forces, Tamer al-Rifai, the crash of an Egyptian Air Force F-16 fighter crashed while performing a training flight. The causes of the incident are being clarified.

Air Force crashes during training flight, pilot dies

- The Egyptian Defense Ministry said in a statement.

At the same time, information appeared that the plane could have been shot down by terrorists from the Islamic State organization banned in Russia, which for five years have been conducting partisan actions against the Egyptian army on the Sinai Peninsula. The corresponding statement, in which the responsibility for the crash of the F-16 Egyptian Air Force assume the militants of the "IG", appeared on the web. However, the likelihood that the militants shot down the plane is not high, since by tradition they take responsibility for all incidents with military equipment. Officially, this information is not confirmed.

    I feel sorry for the man. But the loss of our MiGs in Egypt was not pleasantly annoying and gave rise to talk about the quality of aircraft. But now they will clearly become smaller.

        The Egyptians soaked the score in 2020 for the losses of the F-16. In 2019, there were 8 units.

          In Israel the other day, at the base in Hatsor, they “soaked” 8 pieces at once.
          A week earlier, they almost dropped the AH-64D Apache because of a bird caught in the engine. Okay, at least without loss in flight composition. Egypt was "less fortunate", they lost both the car and the pilot, especially in the area of ​​the Igil thugs.

        Pilot It's a pity! Egypt has not so many of them ... well, and in the causes of the disaster - I think they will figure it out.
        There was information about the increase in training flights of the Egyptian Air Force, it is quite possible that against the background of the nascent confrontation of Turkey in Libya (the Egyptians support Marshal Haftar).

          At the same time, information appeared that the plane could have been shot down by ISIS terrorists who have been conducting partisan actions against the Egyptian army on the Sinai Peninsula for five years.

          In fact, not 5 years, but 6 and a half - since July 2013. The Egyptian army there operates with very limited forces (2-3 battalions), since the Sinai is a demilitarized zone and Israel monitors the Egyptian military presence.

          And what kind of training flight of Egyptian aviation over the demilitarized zone can we talk about? This is so for thinking.

          I don’t understand why for so many years they didn’t carry out a joint military operation and didn’t clean this Sinai from terrorists. Amazing

          ps. North Sinai, hmm ... Isn't Israeli air defense an hour?

          I wildly apologize, but the news on the indicated resource https://www.youm7.com did not report that "the fighter performed a training flight over the northern territories of the Sinai Peninsula." It states that a combat plane crashed at one of the training grounds "a combat plane crashed in one of the training areas". What the hell are citizens?

      They have MANPADS and regularly show. Simply, there is no particular chance of use (fly high).

    The more ISIS floods F-16, the better. The bad thing is that the pilots are dying.

        Yes, I'm not happy with what they got it.
        As one American general used to say: A good Indian is a dead Indian.
        I mean - a good F-16 - which does not fly.

        Let me remind you ..... Russia has only 3 allies: This is the Russian army, the Russian fleet, and Russian aviation. everything else is sluggish, undecided hanging in the hole shit, and you should not rely on it.

            And I remember a couple of years ago in the Mediterranean fleets met, ours, of course, and French. So the commander-in-chief immediately on television told the admiral: “consider the French ships as allied” ... But he knows better! Truth? The French were really stunned and in a day - two said that in general they were not inclined to be friends. They have NATO. And who do we have besides ourselves?

    Isil stated that the pilot ejected and was captured. On Avia-Pro: the plane performed a special mission. It was shot down from MANPADS. The pilot fell captive. No videos yet.

        Hi Paul hi
        There is no evidence that the pilot died. ISIS said without video confirmation ... As a rule, they confirm their victories (especially over aviation) with video materials. Let's wait.
