    RSAF Typhoon crashes in Yemen

    Apparently the pilot did not survive.
    Does anybody else confirm that ?

    This is an unjust war if there ever was one. But the pilot was just doing his job.

    I'd like to see every one of their air assets fall out of the sky

    Considering that in few days two Saudi coalition planes crash in Yemen, both doing CAS mission, there is a good posibility, that both were shot down by SAMs, most probably MANPADs.

    Speculation. Hard to make a conclusion out of nothing. Sorry but this could be related to anything, including an increased tempo of OP to gain some tactical advantages.
    Unfortunatly, War does do the killings.

    Considering that in the last decades almost all crashes were not due to SAMs, there's a rather good possibility that both were downed by a technical failure or pilot mistake.

    there was Saudi black hawk got shot down by supposedly friendly fire presumably from UAE Pantsir system. just too many crashes in past two years that are acknowledged. Typhoon is very reliable plane with ejection seat.
