A Lockheed C-130 Hercules operated by the Egyptian Air Force crashed during a training flight near Kom Ashwin, Fayoum, Egypt. Reportedly one of the seven crew members survived the accident.

The serial of the aircraft has not been officially confirmed. However, according to all airworthy C-130 Hercules aircraft of the Egyptian Air Force were seen after October 2014, except for SU-BAR and SU-BAT. Military aircraft tracking website states that SU-BAR was tracked in flight at 19 August 2018. This leaves SU-BAT as the most likely candidate for the September 21, 2014 accident.
