Abstract (Document Summary)

The dead pilot, Capt. Danny Overest, 22, from Ashdod, is to be buried at 3 p.m. in the military section of the Ashdod Cemetery. The injured pilot was rescued from the sea after he successfully ejected.

It is unclear whether Overest managed to eject. His parachute and pilot's seat landed in Tirat Shalom, outside Ness Ziona, about six kilometers inland from Palmahim Beach. An inquiry appointed by OC Air Force Maj. -Gen. Herzl Bodinger will try to determine whether Overest ejected and was killed in the process, or whether the seat and the parachute broke free in the crash and drifted 30 kilometers inland with yesterday's strong westerly winds.
