An Israeli pilot was seriously injured while ejecting from crippled Israeli F-16

One of the two pilots who ejected from an Israeli F-16 downed early Saturday was seriously injured. Both pilots parachuted to safety in northern Israel and were taken to hospital. The F-16 was hit during an IAF air strike against an Iranian facility in Palmyra, which early Saturday launched a UAV into Israeli air space. The drone was downed by an Israeli Apache and recovered intact.

    Shame on the IAF. Obsolote syrian air defence systems have downed state of the art F16 and apache helicıpter. Four F16’s have been also damaged.

      Yeah and Tehran has been destroyed by a nuke…give it a rest…unlike the enemy – Israel does release accurate info about its losses…until its verified – only one aircraft was destroyed…of course others maybe damaged but thats entirely expected…

    why doesn’t Israel get the F-22 from the USA? It is a far superior plane to the F-35 and much less expensive. And why doesn’t Israel get A-10 Warthogs? or make an updated version of the same. It would be much less expensive than F-35s.

      Neither the F-22 nor A-10 are produced anymore. F-22 was requested by Israel, but the US refused due to the sensitivity of the technology.
