Sri Lanka Air Force war victory memorial showing a war trophy. This aircraft was flown by a suicide terrorist with approx. 215 kg of C4 and aiming for the hangars housing the aircraft of the SLAF's No. 10 Fighter Squadron (IAI-KFir C.2,C.7). As he approached the base, low and fast in the pitch darkness, the SLAF ground defence shot it up with 12.7 mm fire and it crashed short killing the terrorist. Note the markings placed n the aircraft including a title "SKY TIGERS" and the # 905. Thus ended the saga of the terrorist airforce.

These aircrafts/air crew were all destroyed in aviation accidents. The crews walked away in some but not in all. RIP.
