Panic broke in Egypt minutes ago as an explosion occurred on an airbase near Ismalia. Witnesses say that an F-16 fighter blew up with no known cause.

Footage has surfaced of the explosion and both pilots have been reported dead. 

This follows after recent events in Egypt including the downing of a Russian passenger jet. Is it possible that this is a new attack perpetrated by the infamous terrorist organization, ISIS? It is unconfirmed right now as to how the crash occurred.

Probably blew up when it smashed into Earth. May be the cause of the explosion. The rest, I don’t know.
