Just seen this sad news on BBC News.

Ilan Ramon's son, Assaf a pilot in the Israeli Air Force, killed when his F-16 crashed earlier today.

The jet was on a routine training flight, they added. There is no word on why it went down. Search and rescue crews are at the scene.

Soon after the loss of Columbia, Assaf had said publicly he aspired to follow in his father's footsteps and by all accounts, he was well on his way to doing so.

Valedictorian of his training class for the Israeli Air Force, Assaf Ramon and his instructor successfully recovered early this year from an Skyhawk A4 engine failure after protocol dictated they eject. He received his wings and rank of Lieutenant in June 2009.

My heart goes out Rona Ramon and the entire Ramon family.
