Narrative:
Crashed and burned in a desert area.
First sortie by the aircraft which was being pushed into service after years when it was grounded. Probably crashed due to improper flight preparation, but the opposing internationally recognized government forces claims it as shot down using Anti-Aircraft weapons while bombing Al Zintan Airport. The pilot survived the crash.
Conflicting reports say the jet crashed as a result of a technical failure or after being hit by ground fire.
