"Searches underway for pilot, navigator; no distress call received as F16I jet flew at low altitude; assessments say human error likely cause, not technical fault; army rabbis also help with searches.

The commander of the IAF, Major General Ido Nehushtan, arrived on Thursday to the scene of the F16I jet crash at the Ramon Crater so that he could oversee the search for the missing bodies of IAF pilot Maj. Amihai Itkis, 28, and navigator Maj. Emmanuel Levi, 30, who were in the plane.
