Israeli Air Force assessments Thursday morning suspect that the F-16I fighter jet crash that took place near the Ramon Crater overnight Wednesday was likely caused by human error rather than a technical error.

The jet was the leader of four planes that was on a training exercise and sank from an altitude of 11,000 feet to a much lower altitude. IAF investigators suspect that the pilot did not realize how low he had flown because no distress call was received.
