    Pilot reported engine troubles at 13:30 hours and the engine quit, with the pilot loosing control of the plane, forcing him to eject at around 2,000 feet as he was too far from a base and in rare snowing conditions. The pilot, a veteran IDFAF reserves officer with the rank of major, ejected safely near Afula, Israel. Israel grounded its entire F-16 fleet for a short period of time. The jet crashed into the side of a water reservoir near Moshav Ram-On. Army divers searched for pieces of the wreckage in the reservoir. Some parts were sent to IDFAF Technical School.
