BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:20 P.M.) – The body of a missing Israeli pilot was recovered in the Sea of Galilee (var. Lake Tiberius) this week after a long search, the Ministry of Defense reported on Tuesday.

The body of Lt. Yakir Naveh was recovered from the Sea of Galilee after the search for his remains were restarted on October 12th by the Israeli military, the Haaretz publication reported.

Upon discovering the remains, the body was sent to a forensic laboratory to confirm its identity.

Once the identity was confirmed by the forensic laboratory, the family of the pilot was notified, the Ministry of Defense said.

Naveh went missing on May 6th, 1962 after his Fouga Magister plane crashed during a training mission near the Sea of Galilee.

The plane was reportedly flying too low over the water when the engine went out; this resulted in the aircraft crashing into the Sea of Galilee.

On May 6, 1962, Naveh was training a cadet on a Fouga Magister when their plane got too low over the water and the engine cut out. The nose of the plane hit the water, sending them into a fierce spin, wing over wing.

The body of the cadet, Oded Kouton, was discovered a year after the crash; however, Naveh’s would remain missing until recently.

The old Fouga CM.170 Magister trainer had no ejector-seat.
Note that this little jet trainer didn’t flew faster than a WW2 piston fighter : 715km/h only. Had my air-baptism n an AdlA one when I was a kid 🙂

I thaught about buyin a 2nd hand IDF one for €30k a few years ago but, the problem with 2nd hand jets is not the purchase price : maintenance and fuel are far too expensive for civilians and you need crazy red-files/papers and licensing. Even with the two small 3.92 kN turbojets, maintenance requires a full staff 🙁
I could even have had a Mig-21 in mint condition for €30k with only 200 flight hours from French state air-tests dept. and a Mig-15 for €15k.

Fouga CM.170 had two engines. They must have been really low and not full throttle, so the loss of altitude implied by having suddenly only half thrust didn’t allowed to recover.
