The aircraft crashed while taking off from an IDF base in the Negev desert as part of operations against targets in Lebanon. An initial report suggests that one of the jets tyres burst on take-off, causing instabilities to the jet which was loaded with armaments. The crew followed ejection procedures and the aircraft crashed without causing any injuries on the ground. Final conclusions indicated that the jet was equiped with standard C/D model tires, which aren't a complete match to this F-16 model.

Some sources state this mishap wasn't a complete write-off but that the aircraft was captured in the emergency net at the end of the runway and should be repairable. More info to follow.
