The IDF has recovered on Friday the black box from the F-16i fighter jet that crashed into the Mediterranean Sea two weeks ago, a spokesperson for the IDF said.
  
According to a senior air force source a technical fault caused the jet's engine to switch off.

The plane’s pilot, an IAF flight instructor and a navigator, who was being trained, safely ejected from the aircraft and parachuted to the sea before being rescued.
