Video shows Israeli F-16 in flames before crash

Newly released surveillance camera footage shows the Israeli F-16 had been on fire before it crashed on Saturday, apparently strengthening the prevailing view that the aircraft was felled by a Syrian anti-aircraft missile.

In the black-and-white video, shared by Channel 10 news, the plane can be seen streaking across the sky in flames before it crashes in the distance in a blaze of light.

The pilot and navigator bailed out of the plane before the crash. The pilot was seriously injured, while the navigator was lightly wounded.
