        Most likely this is not the point, they just got used to plowing to the stop, no matter where and under what conditions, well, a lot of such experience plays against themselves, so we’ll put such a trough under any circumstances. In any case, their choice must be respected and the blessed memory of Russian pilots. Russians fly where no one flies ...

        If they were assigned a pension, but they decided to earn extra money, then they went at their own peril and risk. For example, after dismissal, I did not go to all kinds of Congo-Somalia for a long buck, but got into a regular private security company for 15 ty. - a day after three. hi

      At this age, retrain on another type of aircraft? Most likely they simply did not want to (age). And they could not live without sky and aviation ... So they plowed the black continent.
      Eternal flight to you, Guys ...

      Who cares about all this? Only for our liberals to once again invent that "Russia is at war all over the world." Earlier, under the Soviet Union, relatives were quietly burying zinc with a major who died in the jungle of Nicaragua, confident that he died in an accident during a training exercise in Tajikistan.

      The less you know the better you sleep. And open the damper - along with water, SO MUCH dirt will pour along with a thin stream of water ....

      I have deeply retired and sent enough friends to the Union. We have only been waiting for decades for the state to ALWAYS recognize that WE WERE THERE.

      Yet it is already clearly retirement age.


      Yeah, one 63, second 64, third 59,
      whoever allowed them to take the helm at this age, are there no age restrictions in aviation, and why then do we send military pilots to early retirement, if they manage to serve up to 65 and save pension money to the state

      The collapse of this side is possibly adjusted for domestic political reasons. Presidential elections are taking place with great excitement, and election documents were to be delivered on board. Documents were lost, the plane only accompanied losses ...

      Pilots now have quite normal pensions. People at this age, with the appropriate plaque, should be enough for life. On this technique (An-12/24/26/32) in the Russian Federation, you won’t earn much. And in Africa, there are much more earnings, and without unnecessary hemorrhoids. So the guys fly according to the schedule, 6 months of work / 6 months at home, passing the airplane from crew to crew. For the planes, in this case, the sight is quite good. But the weather, depending on the season, often throws up surprises.

          As a rule, each board has its own techniques. Change with the crew. There are those who stayed there and live permanently, and they don’t go to Russia anymore, families already have everything there ... They know their plane from the inside out, they themselves fly on it, and the techies are working on it for the flight operators. Large forms in Sharjah do. It’s true with spare parts, now I don’t know how things are. I worked in neighboring Congo in '98, while on the An-24/26 it was normal with glands. Another thing is special cases, blocks are rare, a remote control if you need some kind of test equipment, or some other test equipment ... But, the main thing is that the locator is working, well, so that there are a couple of harmonies with you.

    The plane was chartered by the election commission to deliver election materials to the city of Chicago

    The cause of the crash was a technical malfunction

    Well, yes, well, yes, we know such "problems". Anything can be said about our Electoral Commission now, but they did not think of dropping planes with protocols to achieve the desired result.

    The kitchen is familiar. Himself had a chance on a 26m cruise to wander around Russia. I thought that there with the service staff is very bad.
